Ceiba Tree: 2006

This sculpture was accomplished for the U.S. Ambassador’s office reception area at the U.S Embassy in San Jose, Costa Rica.  It is built of copper mounted on a black marble base.  It is 6 foot high, 10 inches deep and 14 inches wide.  Shipped in three sections it was joined together at the site.  The polished surface is coated to reduce the effect of tarnishing. 

The theme relates to the Ceiba tree legend and the story that the roots of that tree are connected to the soul and spirit of the people. Thus it was a positive project producing a beautiful sculpture that relates in a meaningful way to the country and people nearby.
