Michael Aram's limited edition sculptures are handmade artistic explorations inspired by objects and ideas which capture Michael's imagination. The sculptures are limited to 136 editions each and are individually crafted so that no two pieces are ever exactly alike. According to Greek mythology, Daphne's transformation from a river nymph into a laurel tree began as she escaped the advances of Apollo. Her arms extend into branches as she becomes one with the earth.
"I am obsessed with the idea of metamorphosis- particularly from human or animal form to plant form. For me, Daphne embodies the connection of mankind to nature, and the idea of nature as protector." - Michael Aram
