Squaring the Circle
The Squaring the Circle sculpture in bog oak is approximately 23cm in height. A self standing abstract sculpture featuring an external square with an internal circle.
In James Joyce’s novel Ulysses, Leopold Bloom dreams of becoming wealthy by squaring the circle, unaware that the quadrature of the circle had been proved impossible 22 years earlier and that the British government had never offered a reward for its solution.
Dimensions: 23cm (9″)
Note* Each piece of bog wood is different and unique. As such the sculpture you receive will have the same theme as shown above along with the same approximate dimensions but it may look slightly different to the example shown.
