Metaphor of Life

“All we need is now.” – unknown

IMPULSE is a stainless steel and fibreglass sculpture by Adrian Mauriks. This sculpture can be found at the Pt Leo Sculpture Park in Mornington, Victoria.

Mauricks was born in Holland and moved to Australia when he was in his teens. He studied at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne and subsequently spent some years as a university lecturer in sculpture.

“The work is intended to be a metaphor for life. The bird represents the call, the vessel represents the journey, the cluster (the central form) a threshold and the bud (on land) represents rebirth that results from the journey. The forms float and move relative to one another; a continually shifting arrangement indicating the inevitability of change in our lives.” – Pt Leo Estate website
