"Pathway to Freedom" Forged steel, stone, reclaimed objects. This piece tells the story of two circus elephants that lived miserable lives until they were abandoned by the circus and left chained together and tied to the ground for 5 years before being rescued by the Global Sanctuary for Elephants. The sharp, broken radiators at the bottom of the piece represents the cold, harsh treatment by the circus. The two stones bolted together represent their time of abandonment; the chains used here are the actual chains that bound them. The sanctuary is represented by the gentle branches and leaves that enfold the two stones.
