I was unable to find the creator of this piece, but I feel it is reminiscent of Anthony Gormley’s work (although after searching I do not believe it is his). This piece instantly brought to mind the depictions of monkey evolving to man –
I imagined this work as a carry on from this chart, displaying an evolution in spirituality and awareness. The faces of the figures are calm and expressionless and with the smooth heads, the figures seem Buddha like, serene and earthly. It could also represent the circle of life and the decent into earth, but both of these concepts represent a ‘oneness’ with the earth and a sense of peacefulness.
