Flowing Man

By Ernest Trova
Category: Sculpture


Flowing Man is actually made of two separate sculptures from an edition of nine from the Falling Man series, installed face-to-face. It was the experience of working with mannequins that led Trova to develop his first series of faceless, armless, nude figures that represented the bureaucratic and technological ‘Everyman.’ These figures, which came to be titled theFalling Man series, first appeared in 1964.
