USA-Minnesota“The Tempest”

Captain: Adam Turner

Members: Charley Swanson, David Ryding, Mike Majerus

In northern Minnesota, there’s an amazing wilderness area called the Boundary Waters. It was originally inhabited by the Ojibwe. About 12 years ago, there was an amazingly powerful wind storm that knocked down large portions of the Boundary Waters. If seen from the sky, all the trees looked like nothing more than match sticks all strewn about, not a single tree standing. It was a powerful testament to the powers of nature. This sculpture depicts ‘mother nature’ in an Ojibwe filter, summoning the power of the eagle’s wings to stir up the wind and waves to create the ‘tempest.’
