Jiku

Bronze     2003

Richard Mayer

Juki is the signature piece of sculpture in the garden. It was inspired by the work of German sculptor Jacques Schnier for its architectural qualities as well as its flavor of Frank Lloyd Wright. The name was to mean "center of the garden" but ended up meaning "center of the universe!"

The Japanese believe that the purpose of a zig-zag bridge is that when crossing both ways it forces you to look at all compass points of the gardens. The Chinese believe that evil spirits can only travel in a straight line. Cross the bridge and they cannot follow.
