Painted steel sculpture

30 ft x 30 ft (9m x 9m)

The overall form and curvilinear elements respond to the context and is intended to embellish and complement the landscape.

The sculpture is an abstract form based on a series of rigorous theoretical studies derived from a specific symbology and meaning. It is a representation derived from both the form and the associational meaning of the lotus flower. Its abstraction makes it a more powerful piece than a complete representation, so that its basis is inspired by ideas, allowing it to become almost a myth story and symbol in itself. The lotus has become a symbol that crosses many cultures from the earliest beginnings of history and it has come to represent an ideal of renewal and healing.
