Sculpture: 'Birth of the Sacred Stag (Modern Twisted Deer statue)' by Timothy Nimmo
Bronze Antique Inspired Stag sculpture statue for Sale for Outside Exterior in the Garden or Yard &Outside on the terrace as well as Indoors Inside Interior Decoration by the Mystic Sculptor Timothy Nimmo and is described.. "This is Timothy`s interpretation of an ancient Scythian tattoo found on a 2000 + year old mummy. The tattoo showed a stag with strangely twisted hind quarters. An Lakota holy man and archeologist rendered his opinion that it was a depiction of a creation myth. He thought it might be showing the moment when the Great Spirit created the first stag. He is "being born" in the sky, transitioning from the spirit realm into the physical world. That may not be what the Scythians meant, but that explanation clicked with Timothy and his sense of wonderment and magic about deer. He thought, "What if an ancient man witnessed this in person, or by a dream or vision? How would he have explained this revelation to his tribe? What would he have sculpted as a relic to show future generations, that his vision might become part of their larger myth?" The image`s roots are in ancient man; yet the style is rather modern. He elected to bring the piece to a conceptual full circle by using a patina scheme evoking the cave painting of early man. The truncated pyramid of the base (as in many ancient cultures) is symbolic of the earth and all things physical and mortal. So the stag is being born in spirit world above, and descending to the physical world below.
Birth of the Sacred Stag won the Best in Show "juried category" in the 2009 Sioux Falls Sculpture Walk This was Timothy`s "break through" sculpture both personally and professionally. Please notice that there are different basing options with this. The main views and majority of shots show the base galleries prefer, simply for practical placement considerations. There is one view of a taller free standing travertine base which is excellent for exterior placements or interior "stand alone" placement. Add $1000 USD to to retail for this base. Also note that a variety of travertines are available. Please contact Timothy for further information on basing options. Weight- The bronze portion sans base weighs about 20KG. The smaller base also an additional 20KG. The larger free standing base weight would be approximately 56KG.

"All my life as an artist I have asked myself: What pushes me continually to make sculpture? I have found the answer. art is an action against death. It is a denial of death. " Jacques Lipchitz 1891-1973
