DescriptionCast by hand in the Wild Goose Studio, Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland. This "Who Looks Outside, Dreams Who Looks Inside, Awakens" wall plaque has an outer shell of pure bronze with an inner core of cast resin material for stability. Each Wild Goose piece is made entirely by hand, with no two being exactly alike.
The quote, "Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens" is from Carl Jung, the eminent psychologist. The importance Jung attached to the inner world was revolutionary and is still not universally accepted. By balancing the outer world with the inner, by looking into our heart, we become explorers and the boundaries of our perception leap from continents to angels and galaxies.
Since ancient times, bronze has been a highly prized metal for the making of tools, jewelry and statues. It is an alloy of copper, which was first mined in Ireland over 4000 years ago. Left to weather, it will acquire a green patina; polished it will shine like gold.
Approximately 4.75 inches wide, 5.25 inches tall, and 3/8 inch thick. Plaque has a cord attached on the back for easy hanging.
