"Golden age"

"The Winged Dreams of Eden"... Childhood is the most carefree and bright period of a man’s life... It is the time when you can feel the presence of God, the harmony and fullness of the Creation... In your childhood dreams you can freely fly and even visit the Garden of Eden, anticipating the future return into the lost Paradise...

How can one express these simple thoughts and complex feelings in the laconic and taciturn shape of a sculpture?.. I "saw" the image of a carefree sleeping boy who was flying in his dream over the Garden... The land of Eden with the apple and leaves of "The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil" formed a brisk and dynamic shape resembling a wing...

I want us to look into this enlightened image of Childhood and engage into the Flight together with him so that we could just for a moment recall the path to the lost Eden...
