Time and the Elements

Paul Manship — Time & the Dancing Hours

If Earth is ever represented in a Galactic Exposition of Cultures, I hope that Paul Manship's timeless Art Deco work will be integrated into the architectural wonders that we will erect.

Above is a sublime bronze sun dial, and below we see the Four Elements, bas-relief bronze plaques, inspired by themes in the ancient Tower of the Winds.

Hi Thom,
I love all of these, but I like Fire and Water the most. One of my fantasy novels-in-progress involves the four elements, particularly fire and water, but it is the design of the sculptures that appeals to me.
