More Information
Both sculptural works are welded bronze and set on stone columns. Work "A" has a round bronze base that extends to form rising “flame or leaves” of grass. Work "B" also has a round base extended with vertical bars of bronze held together by three bronze bands placed at equal distance; the top is stylized bronze and overall the piece is cylindrical. Dikhotomia represents a dialogue between the horticulture and agriculture.
