Sound Of Silence

About Art: SOUND OF SILENCE

Brass and Copper Alloy installation of 4000 bells, 12 x 6 x 8.5 feet, 2016

Standing at a regal height, the resplendent sculpture titled ‘Sound of Silence’ is a composition intricately woven from the ethereal essence of brass bells. Each bell, an emblem of serenity and introspection, breathes life into the masterpiece. The profound stillness, reflective contemplation, and profound silence within the artwork echo the profound cogitation within the human psyche, aspiring towards an elevated state of being. Much like the path to justice, an ideal sanctum attainable only through profound contemplation, this magnum opus, with its dominating presence, embodies the indomitable power of conviction and brilliance requisite within the sanctum of the highest emotional realm.
