Ben Rousseau created the “Wise Old Ake” sculpture for the Greenwich Harbour 1st annual arts symposium. This sculpture was a dedication to a recently lost friend, who has greatly influenced my recent work.
The structure was hand formed using galvanised steel tuning and highlighted with IP rated LEDs. The sculpture is basically a representation of the many cycles of life. Each ring represents a path that starts in birth and ends in death. The light shining around the sculpture is the positivity in these journeys and is a celebration of every individuals life.
The sculpture is currently looking for a home where it can be displayed sitting on water so the reflection of the sculpture is repeated through the surface of the water. Please get in touch if you have a business or residence that can accommodate this piece.
