Well, here is my explanation after years of seeing the results of placing my Animalia sculptures in prime locations.
Firstly, no one is going to remember the marble floors, much as I love stone under my feet…but sculptures, especially animals in stages of motion such as these, present a focal point that captures the eye, moves the spirit, and lends a uniquely memorable presence to the space that enhances exquisite decor. Because of the height, often 12ft High, the sculpture lends dimension to an indoor space. Or, alternatively, installed in a location amid landscaping or in the center of a water feature.
Holland America Cruise Line have commissioned many of these sculptures for their ships, and I am told that returning passengers would arrive on a new cruise and ask about the latest Animalia sculpture installed on board.
Don’t get me wrong, I love abstract sculpture, but to a substantial number of the general public, a subject that is easily recognizable, that has universal appeal by celebrating our natural world and its amazing creatures that we all revere, is more relatable, and therefore lingers in the memory of that particular location.
But what about a corporation? – a commission for the entrance for instance – Animals that reflect speed, power, and dynamism, these inspire each employee who enters the premises.
So why not consider sculpture!
