sketches of initial ideas of sculpture
My first clay sculpture, the theme being nature. I got inspiration from the 'Family of three' a sculpture in the school compound, outside the general office. The main idea is that of the harmony between man and nature. The brown 'trunks' in the middle represents us, mankind, while the leaves surrounding it represents nature. The vines wraps itself around the 'trunks', a symbol of acceptance and harmony. If you look closely at fig 2 and 3, the brown 'trunks' forms vaguely the shape of a heart, another suggestion of harmony and co-existence.
