Mumford Award for Preservation of the Natural and Built Environment. This piece is composed from debris which includes a wooden furniture leg, two pieces of wood flooring, a brass platter with birds attached to the surface, a shell, a piece of turquoise, and a metal horned toad which came from post-Katrina New Orleans. The shell and the flowing lines of the furniture leg symbolize the waters of the earth, while the small piece of turquoise indicates our wealth of natural resources. The roundness of the platter echoes the shape of our planet, and the birds and the horned toad remind us of the earth's fauna. 11" x 11" SOLD
