The Force of Nature

The Force of Nature is a series of sculptures by Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn depicting mother nature as a woman rotating Earth around in circles with a piece of cloth. Made from bronze, stainless steel and aluminum, the sculpture has been installed at many places around the world from England and the United States to Monaco and Singapore.
“We live with a false sense of security only to be awakened by Mother Nature’s fury..After having seen the ravaged coast of Thailand and the Hurricane that affected the Southern States I decided to create a sculpture dedicated to Mother Nature,” Quinn explains on his website. “This would be reminiscent of the early statues made as peace offerings to the Gods in the hope of quenching their anger.”
