"The Phoenix"

Joe Butts's avatar Joe Butts

“The Phoenix” scrap iron sculpture 10’x17’x5’ The rising of a Phoenix is a symbol of renewal or rebirth after a period of suffering or loss. The Phoenix is a mythical bird of great power fabled to burn unto itself and to rise from its ashes in the freshness of beauty and live again. It is often an emblem of immortality, idealism, or hope This Phoenix was created for everyone who has ever been knocked down and been able to rise up against the odds and succeed. We all face challenges in our lives, sometimes seemingly insurmountable challenges, but we have the chance to rise above them. Just when things seem to be at their end, an opportunity arises and we are able to soar above our challenges. This is what this sculpture represents. Create Studios LLC www.createstudiosllc.com
