 Green Man Solar Fountain / Winterset Limestone / 32 x 18 x 24″ / $2,400

This Carving is Available For Purchase at The KMJ Cooney Studio Sculpture Gallery, Aspen, Colorado

I carved Green Man well over year before he moved into the tailor-made basin.  I had always intended that he would grow into a fine water feature one day, and that day came when he finally made the transition to a fully self-contained solar powered fountain. For quite a time, immediately after I carved, him he whiled away his days in the shallows of the Sculpture Garden’s Woody Creek Water.  After which he weathered a long Rocky Mountain winter, by which time his patina was already gathering a momentum of its own.

As with all the solar fountains Green Man interacts with whatever sunlight is available, with a stream forceful enough to travel the length of his trough, to the merest little spit of water, delivered with a comic sense of timing, that never ceases to amuse onlookers.  Not only is Green Man fully water self-sufficient, but a recess cut into his back accommodates his solar panel, so there are absolutely no wires or tubes to worry about as he is fully self contained and as long as he has the sun at his back is perfectly happy wherever he may find himself positioned.
