Sculpture Title: Open Mind
Our sculpture uses the poetry of Edward Lear (The Old Man With a Beard) as a jumping off point to describe fate, good fortune, and realizing our dreams.
This composition uses the symbolism of birds (aim high, achieve your goals), owls (good fortune), and a nest (nurturing, growth) to share the idea that we can all be the best version of ourselves if we put our mind to it.
