About the Artwork

Uprooted tree bronze life size sculpture or statue for sale for outside, outdoors in the garden, wood or yard by the Award Winning Scottish sculptress Fanny Lam Christie who states…..

“The sculpture storm received the N.S. MacFarlane Charitable Trust Award at the 180th annual exhibition of the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh.

The sculpture of an enormous blown over Sitka Spruce root evokes a sense of anxiety and vulnerability. The work explores the increasing problem of changing and intensifying weather conditions and highlights the crucial eco-balancing role of trees.

Artist Comment

"The work was a response to the prolonged aftermaths of Harricane Katrina 2005 which impacted 90,000 sq miles of Louisanna and Mississippi and 15 million people. I was looking for uprooted trees taken by storm to work with and found plenty in the woodland Marchmar at Lumsden where I had my first of many residencies over the years at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop. Storm highlights the often irreversible damage caused by severe weather conditions. The durability of bronze serves as a permanent reminder of the problem of climate change and the need to deal with it and to restore what is left of our natural environment."

  • The ArtParkS Guarentee

    All the sculptures on the website are described by the Artists themselves stating the materiel they are made from and their dimensions. If they are stated to be suitable for outdoors they have a guarentee of 10 years subject to the effects of weathering which will alter their colour and finish over the years unless you give them  regular cleaning and maintenance. For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss  lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid.
    Iron and steel will oxidise(rust ) and this falls outside our guarentee.
    Organic materiel like wood, bark willow is variable and depends to a great extent on where it is sited and you should discuss any guarentee direct with the Artist as this too falls outside our Guarentee.
