This sculpture is quite serendipitous, with a subtle and small feature defining its meaning. Viewed from one side, you will see a horse’s head. From the other, a hound’s head. Embedded in the stone in a bottom corner is a tiny fox. This reminded me that to listen to the stone, and be patient until it reveals its inner self.
Two figures sitting closely together. Man on right, woman on left, her head resting on his shoulder. They are holding hands. It’s all about the feeling: “very loving, this is us”. The man is more upright, his knees are higher than the woman’s. The woman is more cuddly. Unspoken emotions - together and deeply in love.
Climbing the Ladder
The warm and happy stone represents the upward corporate “climb”. But the steps ascending to the top become smaller and smaller as you approach the summit. When you reach that smooth plateau, you learn that no one remains at the top forever. You are eventually swooshed off the summit, inevitably sliding down the other side. Far from the corporate ladder forever.
Reminiscent of a waterfall, this sculpture does not have one defined focal point, allowing the viewer to interpret it as they wish. From one perspective, a waterfall cascades over the edge of the water table falling downward. The light colors represent the water and the dark ones represent the underlying stone foundation of the waterfall. The negative space, interesting and shapely form bring a beautiful flow to the piece.
