TITLE OF PIECE: PANGEA

CONCEPT STATEMENT:            

“What was once one piece, no longer can be, now that times have changed, and is no longer free. A journey of time, and discovery of life, the perfect combination, of these two intertwined.” – Arida Jones

Pangea was a supercontinent consisting of all the Earth’s land masses that broke apart 200 million years ago to form the continents we know today. Symbolically Pangea represents the cultures of the world unified as one in peace and harmony. The patterned etching among the planes represent of the cultures of the world. The continuous, central light source represents the unifying quality that links the world’s cultures and people together while the sharp light outlines the shape of Pangea. The glow of the light on the coper symbolizes the discoveries one makes on the journey through life.
