Artist's Statement: This sculpture celebrates the universal cycle of the moon.
Our ancestors lived by the direction and power of the moon.
The moon could bend water, making it rise and fall like magic.
It waxed and waned and changed from a tiny sliver to a full silver ball,
guiding the earth cycles of planting, caring for the young, and moving camp
to survive the winter.
The moon showed us a way to count seasons. From its movement across the sky,
it created a path to read the stars and understand the universe. It provided a refuge
and rest from the blistering light of sister sun, bathing the world in a glow of silver.
The moon’s power illuminated the darkness of night and the mysteries of the soul.
