Last Saturday’s work session with students from North Atlanta High School, Carver Early College High School, and Georgia State University.
Artist Anthony DuBose is a member of the Jennie Drake Park Steering Committee, and created the art on the stones found in Jennie Drake Park. Anthony explains his inspiration for the work:
“Between the 9th and 14th centuries the Khmer civilization created the largest Hindu temple complex at Angkor Wat, located in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The many temples are decorated with thousands of Bas-Reliefs, depicting vivid scenes of life and battle. All of the work was shaped from stone.
Angkor on Bankhead, is partly inspired by the work at Angkor Wat. But it’s also inspired by Moorish Nationality and Hinduism as a science. The stones at Jennie Drake Park are all inspired by the science of the third eye, Vedic tradition and the indigenous people that practiced it.
The stones at Jennie Drake Park have been waiting for many years to be discovered. There are thousands of stories on the forest floor.”
