This work, "Anima : Animus", began in 1987, when Padam made two preliminary drawings for one sculpture. The drawings were done to be the actual size of the sculpture. The sculpture appears here from two different angles. One face of the sculpture depicts a female torso (front view), and the other depicts a male torso (rear view).
"There were two reasons for doing this sculpture. One was that I had never done a sculpture of an anima/animus before. The other was that I hadn't done a sculptural torso before. So I decided to use the torso as a vehicle to convey as economically as possible the idea of dual sexuality within a single human. In dealing with the content, for it to be valid for me, it had to be my idea of what my rear view looks like. And then I matched that up with a corresponding female front."
