The Golden Mean is part of a series of swimmers and bathers Feuerman began working on in the late seventies. The bronze sculpture, which towers 16 feet high and weights nearly two tons, depicts a male diver in an arm stand position balancing solely on his hands. With the aid of a team of engineers, Feuerman's massive sculpture defies the laws of physics and is in perfect balance by a mere six inches of wrist. Through both the process and finished sculpture, The Golden Mean exemplifies the strength and resilience of the human spirit, life's struggle as a balancing act and the victory of survival. In all her work, Feuerman pushes beyond the bounds of mere mimicry and perceived notions of reality.
