Description

This bronze minaret was originally a lightning rod, which comes from a church. I was thrilled by the hidden surprises: the colors of the different metals (gold / bronze, red / copper, silver / tin) and the bows to which the copper wires were originally attached.

It started with a search for support for the narrow tower, and eventually grew into a composite building. The turret clearly evokes associations with a church or mosque.

This sculpture is made of three pieces of cream-colored marble, in which there is a piece of dark green serpentino. The small niches are partially filled with small bronzes. The upright (a separate part) is held in place by three brass pins.
