Philipp Humm

Riding The Devil, created by Humm, is a bronze sculpture that serves as a visual representation of one of the central themes explored in his film, The Last Faust. It delves into the unbridled essence of evil, personified in the sculpture as a menacing puddle. The sculpture also features a striking contrast in size between the rider, Faust, and the devilish puddle, a stylistic choice that references one of the artist's recurrent motifs of the Napoleon, symbolizing the human tendency to overestimate our abilities in navigating complex social challenges and ultimately falling short of our ambitious goals.
