"Heil dir, Sonne!"
Cast Bronze and wood
Approximately 90 inches long by 24 inches wide by 60 inches high ©2009


This piece is currently at
Gate City Fine Arts in Pocatello, Idaho, USA! The address is 315 West Center Street.

This sculpture is  based on Viking ships, but I'd say one meaning (among many) has to do with idealized forms (along the lines of Plato's Forms), and how a universal concept "travels" back and forth from an ideal to a concrete reality. The title is the first words that Brünnhilde sings when she is awakened by the hero in Wagner's opera Siegfried, and means "Hail to thee, Sun."
