Spectacular artworks inspired by creative aspects and innovated by artists are put on exhibitions for people to experience and appreciate them. However, not all have the luxury of admiring the artwork like a regular person due to some physical condition. Talented artist Daniel Ashram ensured that the same wouldn’t happen with one of his recently exhibited pieces at his vibrant display in Venice. The artist shared a video where he helped Dr. Hoby Wedler get a complete experience of one of his 3D sculptures. The artist is seen leading the man who is blind towards the sculpture and helping him further understand the work of art.

Ashram gently held his hands and slowly let him touch and feel the artwork bit by bit to give him the same fulfilling experience as other admirers. Wedler gladly obliged as the artist guided his hands toward the base of the sculpture. In addition to guiding him, he also explained to him bit by bit what the sculpture looked like. Ashram gracefully described the details as Wedler simultaneously felt the sculpture. “This is the base, okay. This is the edge of the work, this is the work itself,” Ashram said as he slowly guided Wedler’s hands. As he reached the mixed media sculpture, the artist helped Wedler feel each element at his own pace.

“These are the crystals,” he said. Wedler, too, asked questions and took his time, taking in all the beauty of the artwork and trying to paint a mental picture of what it may look like. Ashram gently let Wedler feel all the different crystals in the sculpture, naming each of them and providing a space for him to feel and understand how each has been arranged. After helping Wedler understand the basics of the artwork, Ashram asked the man to go all out and take guesses as to what the piece was and what it meant, just like admirers do at exhibitions. Wedler did indeed feel comfortable and browsed through the face of the sculpture with his hands.

“Is it a human?” he asked, to which Ashram gladly agreed. The duo then began discussing the various parts of the sculpture based on Wedler’s understanding and Ashram was delighted that he was able to have some idea of what he had created. “Oh Daniel, this is gorgeous,” he exclaimed. Thanks to the kindness of the artist, Wedler was able to learn, understand and visualize the piece of art. In his caption, Ashram wrote, "I gave my friend Hoby a tour of the exhibition in Venice. Hoby can hear space.” People were smitten by the artist’s talent, poise and the one-of-a-kind experience he gave Wedler.

Amazing!” @emronamervin wrote, “Hoby’s breakdown and final takeaway from the sculpture is incredible.” @davidfamous accurately chimed in, “This is why we create art. It’s all for connection.” @flat6rebel remarked, “People like Daniel Ashram make a difference in the world! Keep going, brother!”
