2014 Entry – Balance

This sculpture is about the negative/positive forces inside and around us in nature.  It seems there is an endless cycle of war and peace, give and take, destruction and growth that cycles back and forth balancing each other out. 

 As the pendulum swings one way the opposing force builds strength until movement ceases and then slowly swings back, gaining momentum.

Dimensions including wooden base –  230mm high X 147mm X 130mm.  The beetles are around 10cm long excluding metal legs.

Materials used:
1st Stag Beetle – Wyoming Honey Olive Jade 2nd stag Beetle – Yukon Jade Boulder – Wyoming Jade Moths – Siberian Jade Stag Beetles eyes – Australian Jade (Cowell) Wooden base – Walnut
Metal – Silver
