It's made of beach objects collected. I am fortunate enough to live by the ocean, and am concentrating on sculpture using naturally occurring and found objects for now. The stones on the driftwood bark are wired in place representing the struggle to co-exist nature with industry. The contrast is the thunderbird sentiment representing native man's ability to harmonize with nature. Branching off, the stones can also be interpreted as figurative, individuals caught within the conflict, family units, and those with relationships less bound in the struggle. Those individuals existing in an advanced state of spirituality and enlightenment have a more complex task making sense of it all. If I were to do it again the wire would be more prominent and the contrast of the individuals more clearly defined. I'm new at this.
