Sculpture – Artist Addé – Celebrating the Wind


Since the invention of engine, the Wind had been put aside, and, somehow, neglected. Today it is back and, once again, regarded as the main energy ressources, non polluting and… free

Long before the sail was invented, the winds were the only carriers of rain as well as the announcers
of important natural events, starting with the direction they blew from.
Praised be the winds !

This sculpture shows highly symbolic values attached to the wind. The shiny warm metal, whether gold or copper which represents wealth, security, and prosperity.
The blue, as for the sky or the life-saving water which are regarded as the fundments of life.
The bended tree. Blown by strong winds, yet resisting with its mighty strength and deep roots.

Then, a small element discreetly hidden, as a tiny sculpture, all round and polished, a white peeble, a potentially neglegted elements, which symbolises the seed, offered by the trees and given to the winds to be carried away to fertile grounds, to grow and multiply as the source of life for all living beings, humans and animals, protecting them with the shadow of its leaves, giving its wood to build houses and tools, and feeding the fire, another fundamental source of life.

Altogether a celebration of the forces of nature, and the strengh of life…
