Profile image of Manfred KielnhoferTime guardians Cloaked in concrete-like or otherwise putrid variegated cloth, Manfred Kielnhofer`s "time guardians" seem to be plotting against time or maybe avidly watching time television- is that a medieval joke or what? Like conspiratory monks in a deathless desultory demeanor, they exude an ominous lack of life as if in a ghost parade freshly arisen from the depths of the Artpark crypt. They blatantly stand here, gnarled and unfazed, making time. Are we lost in a movie, "Lord of the ring"- wise or is it a gathering of the Adams family in...

Sculpture description:
TimeGuards /SpiritGuards / Trent Gilliss, Online Editor Figurative sculpture installations take on new meaning within the context of location. Art of the highest human form. Manfred Kielnhofer?s sculptures accomplish this task. The transitory nature of the work remind me of Antony Gormley?s public sculptures, especially his ?Another Place? series of a 200 craggy, metal figures on the ocean beach. But, the Austrian artist?s work conjure up a more ethereal, mystical quality. They?re shrouded in mystery calling out their ancestors and their progeny. When the viewer looks from particular angles, they become diaphanous, almost soulless ? like the ring-wraiths, the Nazgul, from The Lord of the Rings or even a rougher-hewn predecessor in Prague. Even the introductory paragraph of the Austrian artist?s site reads like the opening to an ancient future, calling on the Druids of Stonehenge and the crusaders of Everquest or the worlds of Myst: In the ages of the ancient advanced civilizations the presence of the Guardians of Time was recognized with respect, reverence and humility. Over the millennia a new mystery was formed and only a few chosen ones, like high priests, spiritual masters and shamans were granted to study it. They were the ones that got a deeper insight in the secret of THE TIME GUARDIANS. The beings were referred to as visitors from other systems, protectors or destroyers and even gods.

Customer comment on 'Red Kite (Steel Bird of Prey life size garden sculptures)' by Ramsay Dick
Hi Peter, The Red Kite arrived today and WOW !! Its fantastic, I have spoken to the artist today to congratulated him on his work. Its in place in our garden and my family are soooooo thrilled with it, he certainly is a clever guy and very talented. I know we will get many more positive comments throughout the summer and can only say a very big thank you for the opportunity to own something that we would not think of having. Thanks once again X,
