phoca thumb l thunder tao-1


Edition of 64, 25"H x 13"W x 29"D with walking stick

The trigram for Thunder represents action which may manifest as inner reflection, thinking, or outward movement. When coupled with inner stillness, clarity, caution and conviction, action may be highly developmental. The Tao embraces the five primary virtues of compassion, justice, courtesy, wisdom, and sincerity. The practice of these in one's daily thoughts and actions forms the center of the highly developed individual. Action without awareness of one's center is debilitating.

This sculpture is my depiction of one who is moving in balance with his center and circumstance.
