Standing Strong (POA)

‘Standing Strong’ is a large figurative sculpture which pays homage to the courage and inner strength found during times of adversity.
Issa was inspired to create this sculpture by his auntie, a gentle woman of great wisdom and integrity who has surmounted many obstacles during her life. In this sculpture he sought to embody a figure standing tall and strong, able to withstand the buffeting of strong winds but one that doesn’t bend to them.
The work is created from mild steel, with decorative surface work, and then sealed to prevent further rusting. It will be on display at the ASV Sculpture Exhibition at the 2014 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show from the 26th March.
