Behind Inner Seeking Shiva Dancing

Behind Inner Seeking Shiva Dancing

1975 - 1981
Sculpture, Stone
The large section removed from the back of the 1974 sculpture called The Great Rock of Inner Seeking, now in the East Wing of the National Gallery in Washington, remained waiting. Two years later I was able to start and eight more to finally conclude what was for me an intense dialogue with the possibilities of stone. Rising out of destruction came the dance of Shiva.

Quotations by Isamu Noguchi from The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum (New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1987), unless otherwise noted. The Noguchi Museum gives thanks to the many talented photographers who have documented Isamu Noguchi’s works, particularly Kevin Noble, who has photographed the Museum’s collection for decades, and Shigeo Anzai and Michio Noguchi, whose portraits of the original Museum installations continue to provide inspiration and insight.
