“Ascension Monument”by: John Maisano
Bronze Eagle Sculpture.
Native American lore says that the eagle is the only creature that can fly to the heavens, bridging heaven and Earth. There is no doubt that this is one of the most majestic creatures in nature. I have always been enamored of the flight of large birds of prey. As an adolescent I would hike in the woods in Guilford, Connecticut and get as high up on a ridge as possible to watch the hawks glide.
This eagle has a sun on his wing, denoting his destination. The other designs represent the currents of the air on which he soars.
John Maisano is fascinated by the artistic designs found in Celtic, African, Inuit and Tribal art which he incorporates into his sculptures. Each sculpture is inscribed with intricate designs derived from natural forms and structures. His sculptures range in size from treasures that can be held in the palm of one’s hand to larger-than-life monuments. His work focuses on graceful interpretations of animals shaped in a way that captures the life force of each animal and transforms it into something more.
