Phoenix

Phoenix by Jeff Tritel

In the sculptor's words...

The legend of the Phoenix can be traced all the way back to ancient Egypt and the book of the dead.  The  Phoenix was the only one of its kind and, at the end of its life, (generally believed to be 500 years) would build a pyre of spice twigs and set itself aflame, only to be reborn in youth and vigor.   As an artist, I am drawn to themes of resurrection and immortality. This Phoenix is an elegant symbol of self-perpetuation.  In a way, sculpting in bronze is a way of continuing after I'm gone, as my work continues to influence and bring joy to others.
