Art figurine "Transience of Life"

"Transience of Life" reflects on the wise words of a sage old man shared with all who will listen. It is about how short life really is, and not wasting our time frivolously. Wanting to share his wisdom, he himself may not have felt the hardships of life or poverty, but the message remains the same regarding for all about the value of time. This abstract elder’s timeless wisdom is captured through sculpting, color, and the use of materials reflecting his advanced age and status in his life. Paying special attention to his eyes, his gaze and facial expression and posture, one can feel that all he wants is to share his wise message with you.
