Sculpture description:
John Atkin was invited to make this sculpture for a new International Sculpture Park in Ordos, China on the invitation of the Ordos Municipal Government. The selectors decided on 26 artists from a worldwide pool in order to establish the foundations for an exciting new collection of contemporary monumental sculpture that reflected the best art practice from a global community.
Artist's comments:

My sculpture is homage to this poem and a reflection of the choices people make in life.
