Overview

This project is inspired by the, “Renewed Life,”
that the Animal Shelters provides the pets that are
brought to it. The shape of the sculpture is derived
from plant forms, as plants and animals have an
intimate relationship in the environment.
The sculpture represents plants as seen from the
animal's perspective, looking up at very large forms.
