Praying Mantis Kinetic Sculpture

by David Bacharach

One of the first works completed as part of this project was a kinetic sculpture, 96” high. A praying mantis poised to strike, perched patiently on a long, steel blade of grass. I chose to study the praying mantis early on because of it´s architecturally, striking body structure and the symbolic meaning attributed to the insect. A creature who symbolized calm, patience and meditation seemed an appropriate metaphor mirroring the pace of the projects progress and the attitude I had to adopt to more fully appreciate the green spaces surrounding me.
