‘Love your Shadow’ is a figurative sculpture created by Issa in 2020 from mild steel and incorporating a cast bronze head from Issa's natal Ivory Coast in West Africa. This is part of Issa's 'Happy Life’ series animated by reflections on wisdom and love. In this case, Issa was reflecting on the importance of self-acceptance and self-love, warts and all, as part of being or becoming a person capable in turn of generous love to others. This sculpture is reaching out, reflective and celebratory; it is seeking to be an inspiration to you to do the same. Check out your shadow and explore your profile, can you love what it reflects? This large estate sculpture is unique and is created primarily in mild steel, hand cut and welded with decorative surface gilding prior to sealing for an outdoor placement.
