New installation at Pappajohn Sculpture Park in Des Moines
A new sculpture has joined the Pappajohn Sculpture Park.
Driving the news: The newest bronze installation, "Even Stones Have Eyes," stands at 12-feet-tall at the western end of the park.
- The sculpture was created by Pakistani-American artist, Huma Bhabha.
State of play: "Even Stones Have Eyes" shows a female figure with a missing arm and peg leg. Viewers see several faces, encouraging a look at the piece from different angles.
Between the lines: The different facades and angles represent dualities, like life and death, beginnings and endings, according to the sculptor.
Of note: Funds for the sculpture were donated by John Pappajohn in memory of his late wife, Mary.
