Powerful Sculptures Depicting Emptiness and Sorrow

A friend shared a photo of a sculpture she admired as it spoke to her emptiness years after losing a teenage son to suicide. I admired the sculpture and went in search of others. These are a few artists I found that depict their view of grief, loneliness, or sorrow in sculpture, all powerful in their own way. I feel “Melancholy” by Albert Gyorgy is an amazing piece that really brings home the feeling of emptiness inside and feeling as if a part of you is missing. I am so lucky to never have experienced that feeling.
