Poey, a resident of Eden Prairie, is known for both bronze and stone sculptures. This bronze sculpture depicts the “Tree Pose,” a balancing pose in yoga which focuses on concentration, clarity of thought, awareness and balance of mind and body.
The sculpture portrays a human figure as growing upward like a tree from the planet earth, its arms like branches reaching for the sun.
