Burning Man Sculptures in Washington D.C.

Maya's Mind by Mischell Riley

This 5 ton cast, 20 foot tall and 9 foot wide sculpture of Maya Angelou is currently being displayed downtown DC (17st & H st).

The three stacked booked create steps to clinb up into Maya's mind to hear her recite her poem "Still I Rise". Her voice is unique and powerful, adding a dimension and presence in the sculpture that evokes a sort of reverence. At the top of her head hangs an empty birdcage that has no bottom in honor of her famous book "I know Why the Caged Birds Sing". Her head wrap turns into birds talking flight symbolizing her poem "Still I Rise".

La cultura maya se siente tan mística, ver como lograron tantas cosas, tantos avances para su época es asombroso. Esa escultura debería estar en su país de origen, en honor a cada uno de esos indígenas. Buen post.
