Once again Sculpture Saturday finds us back at the Wild Art collection of the North Carolina Arboretum near Asheville, NC. Sanctuary is a work by John M. Almaguer and Julia C. Burr constructed of untreated mild steel and sculpted blown glass.


The artists note that their intent is to use the animal world for inspiration and to honor their belief in John Mangelsen’s statement that “being immersed in nature is a humbling and spiritual experience…”  That thought also ties in nicely to my recent post about the Iñupiat experience hunting the bowhead whale in Utqiaġvik (formerly Barrow), Alaska.  


Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Sculpture Saturday is a challenge hosted by Susan Kelly at No Fixed Plans.
