“The Force of Nature” is a series of sculptures by Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn depicting mother nature as a woman hurling the planet around in circles. The sculpture is very symbolic that seeks to remind humans living “with a false sense of security” of the power of nature, and that she could awaken to fury at any moment.

Lorenzo Quinn was inspired to create the series after witnessing the destruction brought on by hurricanes in Thailand, the Southern U.S. and around the world. Made from bronze, stainless steel and aluminum, the sculpture has been installed at many places around the world from England and the United States to Monaco and Singapore. Each of the sculpture is slightly different from the other. Quinn says that his sculpture is a reminiscent of the early statues made as peace offerings to the Gods in the hope of quenching their anger.
