When it comes to casting bronze, the process dictates the quality of results. From the toes to the skull, Legacy of Wisdom arose after a meticulous wax chasing process as an artistic representation of my Senior Capstone Project Design Inspired by Nature .
Legacy of Wisdom embodies two of my main inspirations—the natural world and architecture—and alludes to a main concern of mine: our ways of enduring on earth. I use the turtle shell as an architectural expression of endurance, remaining anatomically nearly identical for millions of years. Similarly, through the long-lasting properties of bronze, the turtle skeleton implies the organism’s superb ability at coping with its environment.
