A beautiful sculpture made of inlaid stone was donated to Spring Ridge Commons.
On Saturday, March 19th, 2011 at the Fernwood NRG Visioning Event, Libby Seabrook met John Cowan, the creator of a beautiful sculpture and he was keen to have the sculpture at Spring Ridge Commons. A few of us, Harmony Sunshine, Linda Chan and Dan Miller had seen the it and agreed that this would be a wonderful addition to Spring Ridge Commons. Dan Miller had even chosen a spot at Spring Ridge Commons. The sculpture is beautiful yet simple, made of inlaid stone. John had made this some years ago. The sculpture is called “Cracks in the Armour”. It deals with the concept that people encase themselves in a protective shield to spare themselves from the difficult emotions and experiences of life. At some point, our separation can become so rigid that it must crack open to allow us to once again engage with the difficult and joyous emotions possible for all human beings.
The Crack in the Armour totem was brought to the Commons in Summer 2012 by Mikael Jamal and Friends and secured with Rebar and Post Haste Cement on November 12th, 2012 ….. Project Manager for this installation was Brent Howard. Funding for this installation by Fernwood NRG.
