  1. 1. Healing Flow <ul><ul><ul><li>Wall Sculpture </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>“ HEALING FLOW” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>The sculpture was commissioned by the Edgewater Companies, Syracuse, </li></ul><ul><li>New York and fabricated at Hatfield Sculpture Fabrications, Poughkeepsie, </li></ul><ul><li>New York.The sculpture is fabricated from stainless steel and bronze tubing with </li></ul><ul><li>a finished diameter of 12' (144&quot;). It is mounted in a 16' x 19' area above elevator </li></ul><ul><li>doors in the entrance foyer. The center point of the sculpture is 18' from the floor. It </li></ul><ul><li>can also be seen from an open stairway in the foyer and a mezzanine area creating </li></ul><ul><li>changing viewpoints as the viewer moves up or down the stairway or views the piece </li></ul><ul><li>from above. The intent of the sculpture is to convey symbolically the purpose, ideals, </li></ul><ul><li>and most importantly, the spirit of the profession of nursing.The outer circle </li></ul><ul><li>operates as a symbol of life, wholeness, and universality while also serving to create a </li></ul><ul><li>sense of balance between both defined space and openness. Contained within the </li></ul><ul><li>circle is a figure with supporting circular elements. The figure is generated from the </li></ul><ul><li>topmost forms which reflect the vesica picis- the space in sacred geometry created by </li></ul><ul><li>the intersection of two circles and symbolic of the cosmic womb, the gateway </li></ul><ul><li>/passageway to life; the forms also reflecting the mandorla. It then moves in a </li></ul><ul><li>downward spiral reflecting the caduceus of the medical symbol and the DNA-RNA </li></ul><ul><li>double helix. The spiraling movement also creates a sense of flowing, nurturing, and </li></ul><ul><li>enclosing movement.The figure can also be seen as an integral part of the other </li></ul><ul><li>supporting circular elements and movements which collectively speak to the rhythms, </li></ul><ul><li>cycles, and energies of life. One of the major movements created reflects the Alpha </li></ul><ul><li>and Omega, the beginning and end; another, the Yin-Yang union of opposing </li></ul><ul><li>elements; the union of spirit and body; of life, death, and regeneration. As a whole, </li></ul><ul><li>they create a balanced, interrelated, and interdependent flow; an embodiment of the </li></ul><ul><li>continuous, eternal energies of life. </li></ul><ul><li>. </li></ul><ul><li>William J. Williams </li></ul><ul><li>Sculptor 1991 </li></ul>
