Chained Freedom

Sculpture, welding, metal, wire, recycled metals

The eagle represents new life as it is associated with the east wind, the direction of spring, dawn and rebirth. The world will no longer live forever and human action is more crucial than ever before if we are to save the environment. The chaining of the eagle is a metaphor for the temporary, negative impact of a dying world; the chain can be removed and changed through human action.
