Tree Hugger

Andy Sacksteder's avatar Andy Sacksteder

My bronze statue tells the story of a young woman in her early thirties. She is smart, strong and accomplished. In the past few years she has finished her extensive education, started a new career, gotten married, bought a home and had children. Student loans, a mortgage, husband, children,and career all demanding pieces of her time and energy. She strives for balance and knows she must stay centered, flexible and strong. Multitasking is her middle name. The statue is in TREE pose (yoga) as her daughter HUGs her leg, looking for her attention and looking up to her.
