We are thrilled to officially introduce the brand new art sculpture by Harma Heikens, you must have seen Harma's "A Good Year" & "Sorry" sculpture from her exhibition or via the internet.

Firestarter sized to impress on a shelf, it sits upright, wheel ablaze, ready to roll on.

Material: Polystone

Dimension: 14"L x 4"W x 10"H

Artist's statement:

To me the burning tire refers to the popular revolt that we see a lot of these days. A gasoline-filled tire is a low-fi weapon, similar to the Molotov cocktail. But the "Wheel of Fire" is also an ancient religious symbol, referring to the sun an the motion of the earth, and the symbolic nature of fire is both creator and destroyer, purifier and defiler. The symbolic meaning of the burning wheel and the actual application of the burning tire as a violent means of revolution coincide, which makes the image extra powerful.
But it's of course also a symbol of speed- if you want it to be about Formula One racing it's okay with me, it's never just one thing - and it's an obvious rock & roll reference too:

'This wheel's on fire, rolling down the road
Best notify my next of kin
This wheel shall explode!'

*Please allow 10-14 days additional handling time for special order items. Thank you!
