ARIETE NEL CUORE at Maze Gardens

I purchased a statue by SL artist Maddomxc (based on the RL work of Mazzieri) for Maze Gardens. The luminous golden figure holds a rotating globe in the left hand, and leans back with all the weight of the world in his/her thoughts. I'm not sure if the model is male or female. I found the ambiguity particularly fitting for a public fountain, where visitors will see him/her as they choose. On Google Translate, the Italian is rendered as 'Ram of the Heart'. I don't know the story behind this title, nor am I sure if that was a correct translation. For the present, it remains a mystery to me, while the artwork itself shines warmly in its new home along the North Shore edge of Maze Gardens.
