- Lee Decordova
deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum
Installed on deCordova’s main lawn, Jaehyo Lee’s 0121-1110=113035 (Lotus) is a 20-foot pillar comprised of chestnut logs that have been burned, hand-carved, and assembled into a massive inverted cone. The sculpture bursts upwards like a tornado; its verticality resonates with the towering nearby trees on deCordova’s grounds. The surface of Lotus is highly polished to emphasize the natural beauty and variation of the bark and wood grain.
