Tucked in the lap of the Sierra Nevada region is Lake Tahoe, a dreamy getaway of fascinating wildlife, sparkling waters, and lush valleys. There’s no better place in California to experience the best of nature, nightlife, and art. After an exciting day of shopping and sightseeing, visitors can stop by the Marcus Ashley Gallery to explore the Lyman Whitaker art installations, a splendid array of wind sculptures that will take your breath away.
Whitaker fabricates Double Helix Sail from copper, a highly durable metal that can withstand extreme weather conditions. When the sculpture spins in concert with the wind or a light breeze, it moves calmly or swiftly as if projecting its own mood. Viewing this piece will infuse harmony, comfort, and joy in the most delightful way. Whitaker hopes to inspire the world to take better steps in protecting the earth’s fragile ecosystem.
The sculpture is designed as a ship’s sail, twirling on its axis as if it possesses a life of its own in the wind. It has a raw, natural finish, its copper and blue tones reminiscent of the desert. Through Double Helix Sail, we are reminded of how our very beings are intricately connected to nature.
