Way is a privately sponsored Sculpture & Philosophy Park. When finished,
it will consist of 14 individual sculptures, 10 of black granite, 4 of
bronze and a gate (with two further sculptures) of black granite.
the sculptures together function as a single work of art, i.e. as a philosophical
installation. The sculptures represent stages of the human's journey from
self-discovery to self-realization to self-denial, which when blocked
are experienced as ordeals. Each sculpture functions as an icon that can
be clicked open to reveal - indeed mirror - a (blocked) stage of the observer's
journey to self-completion. In short, this art-work describes the stages
and/or ordeals of the creative process itself. The collection was generated
for exhibition only, hence not for sale.
sculptures were designed in Ireland, by Victor Langheld. They were made
in Mahabalipuram, India by the sculptor T. Baskaran and the stucco artist,
D.V. Murugan. The Park covers an area of 22 acres of County Wicklow, the
Garden of Ireland.
Open to public: Daily 12.30 to 18.30 from May 1st to Sept. 14th.
