Wings of bone, resurrection, phoenix. The organic form of a bone, in itself or covered with skin, lets a new form emerge – a form that strives upwards, into the air, into the sky. Born out of fire, it towers up, shows volume in manifold ways, stretches its wings, anchored in the massive ground, into the air like a flame of life and points the way, as a towering sign, into the four cardinal directions of its position. Fire, earth, basalt mark the basis of genesis. Aris-ing from out of nowhere. Into the volume of strength. Into the volume of the air that we breathe.
