Icon IV

Following moon cycles has a long tradition in cultures around the world. Linked to the various temporal cycles used in planting crops, time calculation throughout the whole year and the early observation of the similarity to the menstrual cycles of women, has meant the moon has been an important celestial body to observe.

 

The carved moon phases in the glass panel of this sculpture allow the lunar movements to be marked while the image of the moon is reflected in the blue liquid of the glass orb suspended above it. The cast stone base is incised with glyphs representing earth, air, fire and water in a variety of forms, from ancient to early modern, recalling the long history of these elements in all cultures.
