Gravity-Defying Sculpture of Mother Nature Rotating Earth

The Force of Nature is a series of sculptures by artist Lorenzo Quinn that depict a woman pivoting the world around with a piece of cloth. The woman, presumably Mother Nature, is swept with a gust of wind, forcefully draping her attire and hair behind her. There is a vigorous sense of motion radiating from each installation that also performs a remarkable balancing act between the Earthly sphere and its navigator.

Having displayed slightly different versions of this piece all over the world, from England and the United States to Monaco and Singapore, each sculpture provides its own sense of twirling motion without the slightest bit of physical movement. The ripples in her garment and the strain of the cloth wrapped around the globe offer enough visual clues to allow one to surmise the structure’s intended action. Ultimately, the illustrative piece offers a surreal presentation of the Earth’s rotation through a personified force of nature.
