A Maximis ad Minima

The head of the sculpture entitled "A Maximis Ad Minima" by Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1998)

A Maximis ad Minima is a sculpture by Eduardo Paolozzi in Kew Gardens, London, UK, meaning From the Greatest to the Least. It is a large bronze work composed of multiple abstract, figurative and mechanical elements assembled together on a shallow two tiered base. Includes rectangles, squares, planar, volumetric and curving forms, two feet, two hands (holding a set of cylindrical handles/gears), a geometric head, a sphere with geometric shapes cut out of it, discs, shafts, wheels and planks of wood. Mounted on a low stone plinth (VADS).

The message of the work may be obscure or open to interpretation but whatever one’s subjective intrepretation, the message is a powerful one – it certainly provokes both thought and emotion.
