Sculpture Walk 2008

Artist: M. Kate Manley
Title: Magic of Life and Death
Medium: Paper Mache, Fabric, Brass Wire, Steel Wire, Maple, Steel Armature
Description: "The imagery is the tension of life and death and how nature serves humanity on the path of the afterlife. The arm represents human presence and experience and it is white and simple in form to symbolize death of the body. In mythology, the dragonfly is a reminder of the magic that is in the world around us and after us. The butterfly represents strength and commitment to life by migrating thousands of miles to insure their work is done; life's changes, growth, patience, grace, and completion."
