A Brief History


The sculpture is concave with 3 abstract human figures protruding upwards from the face. The west facing 6m high by 3m wide sculpture is made of steel on a concrete base. Artist's Statement: The word is a large creation of God whose beauty has inspired many generations to write about what it contains - the milky way at night, sunrise and sunset, landscapes, oceans, waterfalls, rivers, jungles, deserts, mountains, animals and humans. All of these were made out of love. This piece of artwork is nothing else but love, an expressive emotion, which we wish to share with others.
