Ex nihilo

Frederick Hart, 1943-1999
We went to two art shows today. It's hard for anything else I saw to compare to this Frederick Hart sculpture, his model for the Creation series in the National Cathedral, Washington.

How compelling! I can see why it particularly impressed you.

Btw, congratulations on your re-entry into the world of academia. One of your traits I most admire is your genuine enthusiasm for learning.

Such a cool sculpture. It really does look like it's creating itself!

How big is this? Have you seen the sculpture at the National Cathredral? I could probably look at this all day!
