"Allegorical Art" is a term James Muir uses to describe his work, which is filled with symbology to help create a heightened social, political and spiritual awareness. "The allegorical symbolism in my sculptures bridges the centuries of history to make contemporary statements about the human condition, in order to exemplify the highest qualities of man. My work speaks of Duty, Honor, Courage, Liberty and Justice, but above all, it speaks of Truth and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit".
Muir's subjects matter ranges from historical subjects, to today's contemporary issues. Whatever subject that is used, the golden thread that ties it all together is still a never-ending quest for the essence of life - for truth in its purest form.
Originally sculpted in clay, his sculptures are cast in bronze using the classical :Lost Wax" process. Mr. Muir is available for lectures and/or for workshops to teach the "Use of Symbolism" in Creating Allegorical Art.
