Vision for Sculpture:
In the past, man has played a crucial role in the depletion of our forests and has endangered many animals, bird species and forest vegetation by clear cutting, pollution, and neglect. Over the years, numerous conservation programs have been designed and implemented to protect the animals, birds, and forest vegetation, through education, laws, and public awareness. We must play an active and optimistic role to help replenish and stabilize our environment. The “Guardians” are a combination of man and nature. Together they form an alliance that reminds us to harmonize with nature to help keep our eco system balanced and our environment clean and free from any intervention that may harm or destroy the future of our forests.
