The Big Foot
The Bigfoot Sculpture by French/Israeli sculptor Idan Zareski is a world traveler. His journey began in Latin America and has continued through North America and Europe as it was experienced by art lovers on all three continents. With its African roots, and Latin American genealogy, Bigfoot is a peaceful call of hope, for unity amongst the human race. His huge feet symbolize the roots of humanity on our fragile planet. Given his size and relaxed attitude, Big Foot encourages us to contemplate man’s role on Earth, and racial and cultural differences. The peaceful African with big feet also bares witness to human stupidity. It carries the odors of mass deportations, forced labor, slavery and abuse that Africans, Jews, and Native American and other cultures have suffered throughout history. If the arts are truly a hope for a better world, Bigfoot is a messenger chosen to carry the task. Immersed in several inches of water at the entrance of the Garden, Big Foot has established permanent residence in Miami Beach and now greets each visitor with his own message of peace, tolerance, and respect.
