Rise Up

Dan Daugherty's avatar Dan Daugherty

Created entirely from Scrap materials except for the brass highlights, “Rise Up” represents our efforts to overcome difficulty and trials. This Sculpture is based on Isaiah 40:31; they that wait upon the Lord will mount up on Wings as Eagles. The Base, Created from the brake backing plate from a Pick-up, features an incense burning Volcano with Candle Lava Floe’s and an ash field with a hidden incense burner and represents our hellish trials complete with smoke and fire. The Candles were also re-created from pre-used Candles. The Flaming Eagle breaking free and soaring was created from the steel parts removed from a discarded Double recliner sofa and gently floats from side to side as the head created from a broken Engine stand pipe also bobbles to add movement to the piece. It is my hope that this Sculpture inspires everyone who sees it to break free from their bonds and soars on Eagles Wings.
