Spirit of Ireland

24" x 10" x 11"

Italian travertine classico, bronze

2013

This piece was inspired by the architecture in Europe that incorporates animals on the facade of churches.  The part lion part human is a mythological creature who symbolizes the relationship of  man and animals in spirituality. There is a small bronze piece embedded over the carved door, to indicate a rosetta window was  cast from a barnacle found on the coast of Ireland.
