The Survival of the Fattest sculpture aims to send a message to wealthy parts of the world
The 3.5-meter-high bronze sculpture, created in 2002, depicts a large, chubby woman from the West. She sat on the shoulders of a hungry African boy. The woman holds scales as a symbol of justice, but his eyes are closed — both a reference to the traditional depiction of the goddess of justice wearing a blindfold and a hint that justice is debased into a self-righteous reluctance to see obvious injustices. The Survival of the Fattest sculpture aims to send a message to wealthy parts of the world. It seems to draw attention to our obesity due to over-consumption, while people in the third world are dying of hunger. Most people in western countries live a comfortable life due to the unbalanced distribution of world resources and they oppress the poor through unfair world trade. Rich countries keep poor countries out of Western markets through tariff barriers and subsidies. There is an inscription on the sculpture which reads: “I’m sitting on the back of a man. He is sinking under the burden. I would do anything to help him. Except stepping down from his back.”

The pain of unequal distribution of wealth is creating a flood of refugees
For the rich of the world, the main problem in life is overeating, while people in the third world die of hunger every day. The pain of unequal distribution of wealth is creating a flood of refugees. However, the rich only want to preserve their privileges and take such harsh measures against the poor that they betray their morality and humanism. The Survival of the Fattest sculpture has been seen throughout Germany and In Paris, France as a visual symbol of the uneven distribution of wealth. Defending the art of humanism, Aidho said: “Due to the unbalanced distribution of world resources, most people in western countries live a comfortable life; They oppress the poor through unfair world trade.” In 2009, Jens Galschiot exhibited a series of sculptures called “Seven Meters” at the 15TH Climate Change Conference, of which “Survival of the Fattest” was the most popular. The Survival of the Fattest sculpture is also a great outdoor decoration and landmark. If you are interested in it, welcome to contact us.
