In a museum - Permanent Collection of Mobile Museum of Art

Donated by: Robert Bohlen and Lillian Montalto

Created in collaboration with Joey Richardson, who created the flying Gelkandar figures inside the structure. The wings of the Gelkandar are a combination of the butterfly, peacock and phoenix wing. This work is featured in the upcoming book and museum exhibition Shadow of the Turning, which shares the mythic world of the Gelkandar, unseen beings that influence human behavior. In the story, a character named Simon lives in solitude deep in the forest, where he is led to The Tree of Light. He creates vessels from the wood of the tree, creating a shift in The Balance that is central to human life. The story concerns the individuals who undergo a great adventure to assist with righting The Balance. The book will be published in conjunction with a traveling exhibition opening at the Mobile Museum of Art on January 18, 2013.
