"O. Höfinger 1988" number 1 (unique pieces!)
86½×98½ in

Oskar Höfinger created the design for the three-part sculpture group „Step – Walk – Leap“ in 1986 for the then newly built rehabilitation center Weisser Hof in Klosterneuburg near Vienna. Unlike his two other designs, the monumental marble figures „Fall“ and „Rise“, the ensemble „Step – Walk – Leap“ was not realized for the Weisser Hof. In 1988 this monumental, over 2-meter high version in chrome-nickel steel was executed which was erected in the historic city center of Graz during the Styrian State Exhibition in 1991. The individual figures can be positioned freely and are designed to be viewed from all sides. The great vitality and energy of the sculptor Oskar Höfinger is clearly noticeable in this group of sculptures. „Step – Walk – Leap“ tells of courage, the will to start anew and of the joy of personal progress.
