Niso Maman's Body of Work

Niso Maman is a renowned Israeli sculptor often referred to as a modern day Rodin. He captures the curves of the human body through sharp, metal materials. It is his use of contrast between form and medium that makes Maman’s work stand out. His torso sculpture made entirely of coins retains a uniquely human feel, and looks as though a real woman lies beneath the sculpture.

"Niso’s sculptures speak of understated motion and grace," Onnesimo says. "The three dimensional harmony of Niso’s sculptures have resulted in works of astounding emotion which remain unique in the art world."

If you have an appreciation for fine art, or simply love the human form, Niso Maman is your man.
