The Picasso-inspired sculpture shows two faces looking in different directions, showing the duality of human nature. The sculpture's bright colors and bold shapes convey the complexity of the human soul by using abstract surrealistic forms and imagery pioneered by Picasso.

Making of Murano Glass Picasso heads, faces, hands, and other sculptures is a long and meticulous process, which includes multiple steps. First, the base of the head is crafted from transparent or colored glass using a special bronze mold. Once the base of the head cools off, the glass-master adds features to it in a quick, precise manner, one by one, repeatedly re-heating the head in the furnace to ensure the correct state of the glass for glass-making. In the end, the master adds the hair by applying a layer of hot glass mass over the head and using basic instruments to shape it up and create unique hairstyles. The end result is a stunning modern art sculpture in the surrealist and cubist style of Pablo Picasso, which makes a fine gift and a perfect accent for any contemporary or mid-century interior design.
