The Herons portray the abstract idea of Tsawwassen’s local animals in nature from the perspective of an artist. The collage and assembly of a wide variety of materials represent the viewpoints of several types of artists: photographer, sculptor, metalworker, wood carver, and painter. The collaboration between the artists and the artisan fabricator, who contributed their own flair, created this rustic assemblage.
These elegant and imposing sculptures are composed using a mix of materials – fiberglass, steel, cedar, dichroic, glass and stainless steel, mounted on an internal steel structure. This sculpture was created over a period of six months by 3DS Creative lead Shane Hunter, and sculpture Cezar Sallaveria. The design for the carved wings was provided by Karl Morgan of Tsawwassen First Nations.
