Ascension of Mother Earth

Larry Binkowski's avatar Larry Binkowski

Ascension of Mother Earth is a life size sculpture installed on the lawn of Sixth Street Bridge Park. The figure is emerging from the soil wrapped in vines, the earth broken and parted allowing the figure to bathe in the sunlight. The color of the skin is derived from the sand and beige stones that cover the body and bonded sand is used for the hair further promoting the earth theme of the sculpture. Leaves and vines are also incorporated in the piece.
