Artist Statement:

Cotyledon Victorious celebrates the miracle of new life with a simple soybean sprout emerging from the ground. “Cotyledon” (käd 'lēd( )n) refers the post-emergent phase of the soybean lifecycle where the stem and roots are forming, and the leaves are starting to sprout from the bean. Cold formed steel with enamel and urethane paints were used to create this sculpture.
