Burning Sun is a sculpture from my series Artifacts from a Former World. This series is based on my interest in ancient cultures and archetypes. Burning Sun is an abstract sculpture that represents a decaying world. Yet, a small green organic form at the base of the sculpture gives hope for renewal. The main body of the sculpture is of highly polished cement. This has been coated with an acid stain and waxed to a deep luster. Bronze leaf, copper, and wood constitute the other materials used.
