Bird effigy
Bird Effigy
by Trumen Lowe
About the Sculpture: The large aluminum effigy has a 25211 wing spread and is reminiscent of the small delicate effigies made of wooden sticks woven together. "Bird Effigy" is made with aluminum "sticks" that have been welded together to create a "woven" etherial lattice work of silver. The large bird figure appears to hover above the ground About the Artist: Truman Lowe has established himself as an innovator in Native American sculpture. He has been able to successfully translate the elegance of traditional wood use by his Winnebago ancestors into his contemporary sculptures. For nearly a decade, Lowe has been experimenting with metal as a medium for his work. He began by creating small (averaging three feet in height) bronze pieces directly from his wooden pieces. Lowe has also been pushing the limits of his monumental pieces by fabricating them directly from his designs using aluminum, instead of wood. (source) Medium: Aluminum
