Materials: Hydrocal, crow wing, on steel. 2020. The garuda is a semi-divine mythical bird appearing in both Buddhist and Hindu lore, said to hatch fully grown with all wing feathers at birth and equipped to soar immediately. It is a metaphor for the innate although obscured possibility of humans attaining enlightenment. Combining the human form and avian wing also speaks to possibility, flight, transformation, and our interdependence with the natural world which sustains us.
