This is the wood sculpture that took my social life away from me for weeks but finally! I have completed it. Our goal was to create our own idea of a sanctuary, a place to get away from everything, rather that be a place in your mind or a specific place you like to go to get away from all of the chaos going on in your life. The rules included that we use every bit of it, nothing less, nothing more from just a 4 ft. rectangular piece of wood I got at Lowe's...chopped up, cut, sanded for years all of these pieces. I chose to use pine because I love the lines and its a pretty type of wood.....and 4ft of copper wire, 4ft 1/2" piece of dowel wood, and 4 eye hooks. The more curved pieces at the top are actually two pieces of wood glued together and sanded. The rock represents my totem. Used every bit of that board. ;)

Sanctuary. by ~cherishthemoment There's something very refreshing and modern about this sculpture, and yet at the same time serene and balanced. ( Suggested by oibyrd and Featured by ohnojaylo )

which doesnt't sound overly flattering but is if you think about it ;)

you are very talented!

I agree about you on the choice of wood. The lines look so clean and pleasing to the eye, and whatever time it took was worth it. :+fav:

a great composition, the curves of the wood in the top convey peace and the sense of sanctuary, while the wonky wooden slats in the bottom half give a modern feel. definately a fav :+fav: :D

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D. print feature :winner: ! congrats! :clap:
Today's theme is dedicated to the prints available in the deviantArt shops! (and if you already know me, you'll know my own personal collection of prints I've purchased here is enormous lol).
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure and also, to introduce the more popular artists to the new/overlooked deviants. I prefer to showcase ALL artwork that I love (and that includes popular artists) in order to create a non-biased feature of the talent on dA Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! Sandi xoxo :heart:

It looks like the Sentinel at R.I.T., the only difference is that it probably cost less to build.
