Lane is Commissioned to Enlarge  “Emerging First Man”

Lane’s Emerging Into Spirit series leaves the workings of the foundry: the gaiting material, ceramic shell mold, etc., (the “birthing” materials of the foundry), on the bronze to symbolize generic man emerging out of material thinking into spiritual consciousness and symbolizing our own journey in life.

Because this piece was to be installed outside the shell was cast in bronze and patinaed to to represent the ceramic shell in white.

The 12 ft bronze was enlarged from her 32” sculpture.
