Private Commission, Gunnison, CO; This sculptural seating environment is what remains of a fallen "mythical beast" from the distant past, now petrified with petroglyph markings telling the story of time in this place. This environment was created for contemporary visitors to sit and gather along the residential creekside. These collectors have an important art collection, interest in indigenous art and a deep commitment to the Western State University fledgling paleontology program close by. These aspects were combined to create this sculptural vision.
