Sahara Variation

René Küng

These two giant coils are connected, but wind in opposite directions.

For the Young (and Young at Heart)

This is one of three René Küng pieces in the Harrison Sculpture Garden. The others are Night Wind Sign and Canto a Cinque Voci. Can you find them? What other things in nature can you think of that spiral? How many plants or animals can you name that spiral?



René Küng, Switerzland, Sahara Variation, 2004; Iron.
