Falling Water Sculpture
April 30, 2016
The inspiration for this sculpture titled "Falling Water" is translated from Cherokee, and comes from Oklahoma's state flower, the Mistletoe, and the state bird, the Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher. This 25 -foot-tall aluminum statue is an abstract representation of an untouched Oklahoma prairie. Artist Lin Emery has always been interested in portraying energy moving through nature, seen through the use of the aluminum, which makes the piece appear to be very light and reflective of its surroundings.
This photo of this wonderful piece of public art was taken on a recent trip to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I also loved the juxtaposition of the older building next to the all mirrored glass building in the foreground of this photo. And yes......I loved the reflections of all the buildings around in the mirrored glass.
