Assuming you want to know the truth here, to achieve all the natural-looking patinas and textures on this fountain, we had to: pound it with a variety of different hammers, run back and forth over it with my kubota, twist it into weird contortions, then untwist it, shoot it repeatedly with special bullets, heat it, quench it, then hit it with strange chemicals. All that work just to get the "look" of something you'd find in a magical copper Mine. Then...when it's all finished we cover it with optical Lexan so that the coloration remains just like the day you bought it. Our little group here is split on whether it's the wall of a Canyon: up-close, or that same Canyon viewed from 40,000 feet. Either way, it's really pretty.
Here we have an abstract interpretation of the moment...right after the big bang. Everything is exploding, spewing out shards of energy and molten mass, while at the center of the whole thing is a Giant power source, a mega sun. Well...the astronomers may take us to task, but it's a good-looking fountain and the energy is off-the-scale.
Claude Monet was always one of my very favorite painters and this is a tribute to him. I'd like to think that if he were alive today, he might enjoy sitting in his Library and listening to this fountain. Notice the brushwork on the water. It's alive! hope you enjoy.
The moment I finished this one, my wife wandered by and discovered...well...all kinds of symbolism in it. I told her to go away and leave me alone. We're into music, but We're also into other things that...go bump in the night. If you want to see naughty symbolism in this sculpture, go ahead.
