Hero's Call

Joseph Campbell, the noted expert on myths, art and religions of the world, had much to say about “the hero”. In order to risk leaving home to explore the unknown, the true hero (or heroine) usually received a “call”—that dramatic moment when he knew exactly what god expected of him, and what he would be attempting to do to “make a difference”. In this emotional sculpture the Hero has just heard the voice of god, and is frozen in the act of saying “YES!” There is a sense in which many of us remember saying "yes" to a calling. This piece enables us to remember that important decision.
