Fountainhead, China


Philip Bews Diane Gorvin
Sculpture for public sites



International Friendship Sculpture Park, Ordos City, Inner Mongolia, China
Commissioned by Ordos City

The sculpture combines a head, with ‘fountain’ hair, topping a monumental structure cast in bronze, 5m high. Nine 25cm square, glass ‘windows’ are set in two curved rows down the front elevation of the sculpture's architectural/figurative form.

Fountainhead was fabricated in the Beijing Yi DongYuan Sculpture Centre to our detailed design. The design was from a proposal that we first made for Belfast see here.

Maquette photograph is by Phil Bews, the other images were taken by Mr. Mao's staff and organizers in Ordos.
