JAMES N. MUIR

 

Allegorical Art is a term James Muir uses to describe his work, which is filled with symbology to help create a heightened social, political and spiritual awareness.“The allegorical symbolism in my sculptures bridges the centuries of history to make contemporary statements about the human condition, in order to exemplify the highest qualities of man. My work speaks of Duty, Honor, Courage, Liberty and Justice, but above all, it speaks of Truth and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.”

 

“Allegorical art provides another dimension, allowing creative people to use their God-given talent to express their higher attributes of mankind through symbolism in their work to leave their own lanterns to light the way for others…”  ~James N. Muir
