‘Eternal Spring’ by Auguste Rodin

Eternal Spring by the French sculptor Auguste Rodin is mounted on a metre-high plinth inside the entrance of the Fine Art Gallery. The bronze sculpture measures almost a metre in length and stands at just over half a metre high. It depicts the nude figures of a man and a woman locked in a passionate embrace.
