          As how Eric David described Solomon Saprid’s artistry “In Saprid, Contemporary sculpture has found another Master.”

          Saprid’s medium — chiefly brass and other scraps of metal — is welded in a rather rough manner that induces more drama through its texturize flare — which proves to be a strength of his creations.

          His masterful work puts a creative play on mythical figures.  In this masterpiece  of Saprid, a mythical man in his natural and lively nature presents a dramatic dance, ending into a graceful surrender of all his might and power to the heavens.
