Give or Take

I liked this sculpture by Louise Bourgeois because I liked the way one arm extended into two different hands. I also like the positioning of the fingers, with one hand open and the other hand grasping.I had difficulty with finding more information on this particular sculpture but after doing more research on the piece I found the name was “Give or Take” which I found interesting as the open palm could be a representation of giving as and the partially closed hand could be the representation of taking. After doing more research on the sculpture, I found that many believe this sculpture represents the dilemma individuals face in their lives as they try to find an equilibrium of their actions of giving and taking.
