The Wise Wanderer
'The Wise Wanderer'
The search for truth often involves an intention to gain insight while working against adversity. Thomas Blackshear portrays this dedication to a meaningful quest through an elderly wise man leaning into the winds of opposition, intent on seeking greater wisdom and truth.
The story began in 1995 with The Storyteller, the most sought after Ebony Visions figurine, which introduced the wise old man sharing universal truths and stories of his heritage...
It then continued in 2000 with the Rite Of Passage, depicting the old man passing his staff, which represents knowledge and heritage, to a youth who will now take on his adult responsibilities...
And now comes The Wise Wanderer, continuing his journey in search of greater enlightenment, as he prepares to move beyond his physical world into a spiritual realm.
This is a must have piece for an Ebony Visions enthusiast.
"I always knew I wanted to create Ebony Visions'. As an artist who happens to be black, I had distinct ideas about what I would like to see in the line." The elegant compeling figurines he created for the collection are a blen of both Art Nouveau and African culture, which Thomas calls "Afro-Nouveau." - Thomas Blackshear .Thomas Blackshear introduced Ebony Visions in April 1995 with the release of the first six Ebony Visions designs, The Storyteller, The Protector, The Nurturer, Siblings, Madonna and Tender Touch. Since then, Thomas Blackshear has created many new designs to add to the Ebony Visions collection. Thomas Blackshear's Ebony Visions collection is a master work of romantic symbolism. As with his paintings, these sculptures demonstrate Thomas Blackshear's incredible sense of design, unique eclectic style, and extraordinary mastery of color. Elegant drapery and delicate detail tantalize the eye while revealing each sculpted form. Thomas Blackshear's Ebony Visions depicts a full range of emotions that are both powerful and at the same time subtle. He deliberately portrays his Ebony Visions figures in a timeless setting in order to transcend a specific time, place, or culture. This unique collection of limited edition figurines emphasizes the beauty of the human form and symbolizes universal aspirations and ideals of humankind depicted through images that reflect the unique characteristics of the African American culture. For centuries classical beauty has been portrayed predominantly by white artisans who represent white subjects in their art. In this romantic and subtle tour de force, Thomas Blackshear creates a new vision of beauty and human emotion, an Ebony Vision.
