The cycle of Ra
The sun disk; the rising sun and the rebirth of an era, named Ra is the originator of the ancient Egyptian pantheon. Fascinated by this mythology Rembrandt Jordan created three objects that may be appreciated in their own right, but are conceived from the outset as an ensemble of elements constantly in motion, like the cycle of life. The three related pieces are part of a family of related forms: Ra Rising, the Mask of the descending Ra and Liquid Copper.
This red brass hollowed form seems to glow warmly and flows over to the frame in which the rays of the sun god Ra has etched growth lines into the rich cherry wood.
