About: This is a one of a kind bench carved out of a large granite boulder extended by decorative metal painted red. People who were walking the trails asked for benches to be installed so they could rest and reflect. Instead of placing utilitarian benches throughout the Sculpture Forest the Board of Directors held a competition for one-of-a-kind sculptural benches.
It is called “Evolution” because of the evolution from carving things out of stone to shaping things out of metal that comes from stone. At the same time Metalgenesis entered the Sculpture Forest competition they were invited to an international sculpture symposium in Latvia. Somewhere in a park in Latvia is the sister sculpture to our Evolution.
Materials: Granite and Steel
