2007 Art on the River Sculpture Viracocha
Robert Thorpe - Cedar Rapids, Iowa
7' 2", steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and brass, Viracocha is part of the artist's "stellae" series. The series offers an homage to Native American art, especially the high civilizations of Central and South America.
It is made of four different metals for contrast. Both the front and back have imagery that is similar but unique.
