The material was pure, and his art was pure;
How could the result be other than wonderful?

Crafted from solid bronze and acrylic
this piece combines two separate materials
in a unique partnership of solid, dense matter and light, transparent ether.
Measuring 13in high by 5in deep and 3in wide,
it represents the human form completely surrendered
and yet firmly upheld and supported by seemingly nothing.
At once the very foundation or base soars upward
to become the delicate hand which holds the very center of our being.

The human form is purposely crafted
in a non personal manner suggesting everyman/woman.
It suggests a feeling of falling backwards into abandon
yet soaring upwards.
