"Dharma Racksa", ('for the love of nature..')2015 - 2016
Sculpture commission for the 'Ginger for Life' garden project at the Queen Sirikit Botanical Garden, Chiang Mai, Thailand. (June 2015).
'Dharma racksa', or 'for the love of nature' is a site specific sculpture created for the garden. Made from locally sourced sustainable timber. The form of the work describes the essence of beautiful plant growth towards the sun. The work is still evolving and changing, as seen in the final photograph, taken in October 2016
The QSBG carry out scientific research into conservation and the properties of plants for medical research. The ginger garden is a collection of ginger plants native to Thailand and internationally.
Two further sculptures were created during the project, "Pratu Dharma Racksa", a bamboo gateway and 'Princess Ginger', sculpture.
