I particularly enjoyed these walls in the middle of this exhibit. I appreciated how it stuck out and was the center of the room, as if an art piece itself. The muted blue color of the walls meshed well with the tranquil pieces that hung upon each section. I felt very peaceful, yet exposed in this "corner" of the exhibit. I thought the small section was odd, but I enjoyed its aesthetic.
Art and Core Values
Dancing Ganesh. 13th Century. Black stone. Harn Museum of Art, Gainesville, FL.
This pot-bellied and jolly son of Hindu gods is a representation of problem-solving and "finder of ways". This sculpture represents my core value of "keep moving forward". Despite the obstacles life places in one's path, it is important to remain optimistic and I resonate with this sculpture on that value. This artwork instills hope in me because it demonstrates how vital persistence is for fulfillment, even in India in the 13th century.
