Reverence, 1989

Reverence represents two tails of whales diving into an imaginary sea of grass. After spending ten years on a swiss replica watches site in Randolph, the sculpture was sold and moved 60 miles north to Technology Park as the centerpiece of a proposed sculpture park (see "Ammonite Fountain" which is also at this site). Carved from 36 tons of African black granite, this piece was recently chosen to grace the cover of a college art history textbook called "A World of Art" by Henry Sayre. A breitling replica two page description of the piece and a CD-Rom containing parts of a video documenting its creation are also included in the book.

Medium: Granite.

Location: Burlington, VT
