Ab Ovo-The Fertile Nest

The sculpture relates three interrelated ideas: the Egg, the House, the Trees. “Ab Ovo” is Latin: from the beginning of time. The Egg, is a symbol of new life, supported by the frame of a House – symbol of community – upheld by four sprouting Trees. The symbolism associated with trees & forests contains in itself multiple meanings in every culture, particularly in British Columbia.
