This sculpture shows a man morphing into a cactus, or a
cactus morphing into a man, blurring the line between man and nature
while reminding us of the beauty of the world around us.
The saguaro cactus stands as a
stately ambassador in the Southwest, welcoming humans to the Sonoran desert.
This unique plant’s
seen in upper right picture, were named Arizona’s state flower in
appreciation of their beauty and the centrality of this cactus to the diverse
peoples of the Southwest. Through this sculpture series, Cactus-Man, I hope to
reflect the beauty of the Sonoran desert and for the future of human
interactions with this unique ecosystem.
There are two other versions of Cactus-Man
( 24" tall)
and Small ( 6" tall).
Also available is a maquette, a special order, of a whimsical saguaro cactus sunning it's self with solar panels, that may be of interest to someone looking for a small gift idea.

The patina, or coloration, imitates green
and dark tones of the
found in the Sonoran Desert.
