“She is descending into the chaos of a planet in the process of creating enough stability to support life. She brings an indispensable gift to this new beginning beauty. She is the Deva of Roses.” – Michael Parkes
The Marcus Ashley Gallery is a premier showroom in Lake Tahoe that displays the inimitable Michael Parkes art. The artist is well-known for his extraordinary work that merges fantasy with reality. Parkes has spent over 40 years perfecting his art techniques that produce remarkable results. His wild vision and creative genius put him at the forefront of his peers as a master of magic realism.
The sculptor often refers to the goddesses as devas, a term used widely in Vedic scripts. Like her Greek analog, Aphrodite, Venus has been called the goddess of roses, a symbolic reference to her beauty and love. Parkes places the goddess at the precipice, looking down on a chaotic world. With her trusty leopard by her side, she is ready to descend into the chaos to bring about order and stability.
Descending is sculpted with precision to amplify the subjects’ powerful and beautiful energy. As an elegant accent, this sculpture will enhance any corner of a room.
