The Force of Nature

12 x 9  Oil on Gessobord

This beautiful sculpture by Lorenzo Quinn is at Marina Barrage in Singapore.  He dedicated it to Mother Nature after seeing the damage done during the tsunami in Thailand and the aftermath and destruction of Hurricane Katrina.  The research says that it is reminiscent of the statues made by people as offerings to the gods in the hope of appeasing them.  I love the pull and strength of it.  Here is a woman harnessing the Earth.  How beautiful!
