DESCRIPTION:  Arguably MacDonald's most powerful work, he tells the story of Orpheus descending into Hell to rescue his love Euridice, pulling her from the murky depths. The sinewy male figure, doubtlessly based on MacDonald's work with gymnastic members of the troupe Cirque du Soleil holds the limp body of his love as he ascends from the fires below. Allegorically this is the story of anyone who has been there for you when you were down and endeavored to make it better. SOLD OUT edition of only 12 with a list price at above $220,000.
