Sculpture description:
Fleming designed this monumental sculpture in granite and bronze for a symposium and sculpture park in Tongling City, China in 2012. Please see Artist comments.
Artist's comments:
This sculpture represents cooperation between two people or two nations.

From out of the ground rises what appears to be a rugged stone mountain. From the top of the mountain rises what appears to be a vertical tower of quarried and finished stone. Two hands, approximately 3-times life-size,
project from either side of the stone tower and support a low, perfectly circular bowl that is gently tilted to one side. The bowl can pour water or it can collect sunlight (or both) and it represents the bounty that can be collected and shared by the two hands. All these elements of the sculpture are made of bronze.

A person viewing the sculpture from a distance will see the whole composition including the inside of the bowl. When people approach the sculpture and stand beneath it, they will be looking up to the back (dorsal) sides of the hands and will see the bowl between the fingers. And
if water is pouring from the bowl, they will be able to touch and walk next to (or through) the waterfall. There will be a catch-basin with drain to collect the water that falls to the ground and the water will be re-circulated to the bowl, above.

So, from the surface of the earth rises the mountain. And from the mountain, people create with their hands the stone and bronze that is the tower and the bowl. And from this gift of the earth and work and cooperation between people, there is much to be shared and enjoyed.

I can`t begin to express how incredibly talented we feel Wesley ... [Read more]
