Description: Mountain Piece

A walk around this sculpture invites a variety of observations: craggy, rough bronze surfaces seem to circle around an interior space; the vertical forms are suggestive of figures.

However, as sculptor Hilda Morris was an artist who was most comfortable with abstraction, the viewer benefits from not rushing too quickly to assign meaning, and instead, should consider the sculpture from multiple points of view.

In the words of former MAG director Harris Prior, "I myself am delighted that we have chosen this particular piece as it has been a favorite of mine all along and in many ways represents, more than anything else of hers that I know, her love for the world of nature in the Pacific Northwest and her mystical view of nature.”
