There are over 3,800 works of art housed in and around Crystal Bridges. During our tour, it seemed as if Kurt was drawn towards circles.
The circle is a universal symbol which represents totality, wholeness and even perfection.
It represents eternity, with no beginning or no end.
What’s more, man can be included in the grand scheme of the circle. When one views a symbol with a circle around it, it is as if the viewer is asked to be drawn in and included in the experience of whatever symbolic message the center may hold.
It’s fascinating to think about the significance of something so commonplace in everyday life. I am truly grateful for those individuals who dedicate both time and talent to creating opportunities for us to look, and perhaps even to go as far as to study and contemplate the beauty and wonder of the common, and often thought, mundane.
