The Sower

This is a small model for a monument I hope to create someday.  The image of a farmer sowing seeds not only depicts literally the efforts of farming, but also symbolizes tomorrow’s promise in today’s exertions.

To enhance its meaning I have added an abstract, spiraling form that shows the seeds fanning out to reach the earth, bear the farmer, then continue back up to refill the seed container.  It is a symbol that speaks of purpose, hope, & optimism, and of paying it forward.

“The Sower” represents the mission of any teacher, researcher, entrepreneur, school, or laboratory making efforts to enhance the future.

Wouldn’t he be great on your campus, building, or mantle?
