Visually striking in a poetic and even philosophical way, Rain by Nazar Bilyk, an artist based in Kiev, Ukraine, is a sculpture that revels in a natural occurrence. Subtly surreal, the raindrop interacting with this statue is oversized, hiding the face of the man completely despite its translucent material. A poignant piece, the sculpture encourages onlookers to connect with it on an emotional level while also reflecting on its meaning.

Measuring 1,87 meters in height, Rain by Nazar Bilyk may not be compelling in terms of size, but the man depicted might has well have the stature of a giant. Completely captivating, the raised face and almost slouching stance captures one who has surrendered to a moment in order to enjoy it to its absolute fullest.
