The Seed of man sculpture is the first piece in the series. It depicts a man kneeling down into a fetal position with his arms clenched around his knees. From within the sculpture there is a bright glow of light emanating from the figure’s chest and he appears to be slightly elevated creating a floating feeling. The title reveals the comparison between seed and man and the association to procreation and growth. The light coming from within the figure represents the unseen energy stored in a seed that has the potential to produce a full grown tree. The man is compared to a seed and therefore also has the potential energy to grow into something large and impressive by comparison.
