“From the Origin layers of Humanity, we are connected by a common denominator.”
I imagine humanity as if comprised of layers. Some layers are thicker, some more modest, all piled from the past to future. This sculpture is but a segment of this image. It starts from within the earth holding our ancestors’ layers within. Some are here now. The future is to be imagined climbing to the sky. Through us all runs a common denominator, touching us all. We have the ability to grow through this universal truth. May we do our best!
Stone, born of our planet’s immense power, contains the elements of an unimaginable stretch of time. It is a reminder that we too are continually living, learning, in transit. Learning life’s lessons can enable us to achieve new emotional ground. If we are lucky, we learn both our true limitations and how far they can be beyond our own belief. Each time we have the option to emerge wiser, stronger, and more competent. In transit between phases of genesis, this stone embraces yet more life. At the same time, it holds the past and is potent with future promise.
