Brother bird 1
Bird Brother
by Karla Wyss Tye
Bird Brother depicts a larger bird character caressing its smaller ‘brother’ in its cupped hands. According to the artist, “Birds are an important mythological symbol that have persisted since ancient times to the present day. Because of their wings, birds are not bound to the earth but are free to explore the heavens. Freedom to fly is the reason why birds have been chosen to represent our spiritual self, our soul, that part of ourselves that knows no boundaries and is a part of something larger, which allows us to dream, to create and explore the mysteries.” This important sculpture was an anonymous gift to LAS.
