Metal, paint – w 3′ x h 6.5′ x d 2′



“Circle of Trust” is a contemporary sculpture in metal, consisting of a simple, yet powerful composition of circles. The artist has a fascination for circles, that became universal symbols in so many cultures, religions, and traditions ( mandala’s, Stonehenge, crop circles…) Circle of Trust is symbolically not a perfect circle: just like in nature: it is about building and rebuilding trust to form an almost perfectly balanced circle.
