THIS LIMITED EDITION IS SOLD OUT.

This is Maya Lin’s first limited-edition sculpture. An experiment with materials new to Lin, Ecliptic was cast in bronze by hand. The sculpture has a sensual form and surface that offers a meditative yet powerful viewing experience. Typical of Lin’s work, which frequently explores the relationship between sky and earth, this piece reflects light and creates shadows that evoke the moon during phases of an eclipse when hung on the wall.
