Okto is the Greek word for the number eight. The static portion of this sculpture, with its smaller top circular shape and larger bottom portion, looks like the numeral, 8. The material of this wood sculpture is honey locust and the base is select, radiata pine. The honey locust sculpture is colored with an orange dye and the base is a two-toned combination of orange and yellow dyes. The sculpture and the base are both finished with a multi-layered, high gloss polyurethane coating. A customized, painted black pedestal is included as part of this sculpture.
The coloring and sculptural form of Okto lends an oriental influence to this beautiful, meditative sculpture.
