“Crane’s Dance” was greatly inspired by the Japanese cultural belief that cranes are mystical, holy creatures. They are said to bring good fortune and longevity. In Japan, cranes are also fabled to carry souls to heaven. For this reason, I paint my sculpture to honor the over 500,000 souls lost in the United States to Covid-19. My hope is that this work will bring peace to the hearts of people everywhere.
See this sculpture at Nannie Helen Burroughs Ave. near 50th St. NE.
