This piece is based upon a sculpture titled ‘Pain’ by Emilio Gallori, which captures the central figure in a state of emotional distress and despair.
The artist has included a partially deflated heart balloon to represent male heartbreak. Due to societal expectations, men often hide their weaknesses, some believing that expressing their true emotions will taint their masculinity. This piece exists as a reminder to understand that men have their own unspoken struggles, often hiding their pain beneath a veneer of strength.
