About the Artwork

Bronze Contemporary Semi Abstract Leaping Big Horn Sheep Ram Sculpture. For Indoors Inside Interior display in the House or Home and Outdoors in the Garden or Yard and Exterior or Outside on the Patio or Terrace. By the Award winning American Sculptor Timothy Nimmo who writes…
“Storm King was inspired by the view of the Colorado Rocky Mountains from Timothy`s home in Loveland Colorado. Loveland sits on the geographical transitional area where the Rocky Mountains meet the Western edge of the Great Plains. Here, the weather comes from the mountains from the immediate west, and moves out over the “Front Range” onto the Plains. Often clouds will form around the high peaks on clear afternoons. One can`t tell where the sky, clouds, snow, and rocks begin or end. In mid day, these clouds begin to blow off the peaks of the high mountains, and move over top us forming gusty winds, brief down pours, and short hail storms. As they proceed East, within a few miles and in short order they blow up into mega thunderstorms which produce very severe weather. Watching these phenomena, living with them, Timothy began to see the life an energy of these storms as an animal allegory symbolized best by this mighty creature: the curling elements in the body and joints became swirling winds and rain, the legs symbolized lightning bolts, the burls of the horns representing hail.

Artistic inspiration for Storm King came from a marriage of Paul Manship`s Prometheus and Van Gogh`s Starry Night; filtered through Timothy`s original nature inspired vision.

  • 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.
