This piece has had several different names including “Dilemma,” “Girl and Devil,” and “Quandary.” Look closely: the two figures depend on each other and are also stuck in their situations. The Girl cannot get down from the tower because it is broken. The Devil cannot climb up the ladder because the rungs are broken. The Girl is precariously balanced on one toe, and if the Devil falls or is removed from the ladder, both Girl and ladder fall. The piece communicates a philosophical message, and like all of Vladimir’s sculptures, at the heart are the themes of balance and interconnectedness.
