The Thinker by Auguste Rodin is a symbol of philosophy and knowledge Istaknut

One of Auguste Rodin's most famous works, Le Penseur, or The Thinker was intended to be a part of Rodin's The Gates of Hell and represent an early Italian Renaissance poet Dante Alighieri pondering The Divine Comedy, his epic story of Paradise and Inferno. However, in 1889 Rodin exhibited the sculpture independently of The Gates, giving it the title The Thinker, and in 1902 he embarked on this larger version. Sculpture The Thinker exists in many marble and bronze editions in several sizes were which were executed in Rodin's lifetime and after. The most famous version is the bronze statue cast in 1904 that sits in the gardens of the Rodin Museum in Paris.

Auguste Rodin created the original sculpture The Thinker in 1881, and it was the first cast in 1902. He created sculpture in a way that mirrors the heroes of Michelangelo and portrays thought as a masculine, powerful act. The contemplative look of The Thinker gives this sculpture a feeling of calm. The sculpture represents a muscular, taunt, and valiant naked man perched on some rock, gently reflecting whilst deep in thought. He balances his chin on one hand which communicates to the viewer his state of mind. The whole figure looks a bit raw. The hunched torso is simple but adds to the sense of power that is apparent but by no means threatening. The head is large, the fists exaggerated. The muscles in the broad shoulders and back are tense because the right arm is in the left leg.
