A visit to China and a proposal

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

David has just returned from a 10 day visit to China, during which he and his hosts laid the groundwork for an exciting new project.  David has been invited to propose a monumental work for the Lintong district in Xi’an, near the site of the famed Terracotta Warriors.  The proposed work features eight larger-than-life bronze horses atop a landscaped water feature, and presents a narrative that ties past to future.

The installation, which is expected to exceed 100 meters in length, would be the centrepiece of a proposed sculpture park.

Some early explorations of the theme can be seen below:
