This sculpture is a re-creation of a key symbol of humanity’s great religions throughout history; a symbol that demarcates the birth of symbolic sacrifice, and simultaneously its disruption.
The lamb is present in Abraham son’s sacrifice, but this is not the first time that it was introduced, as it has been present as a metaphor of great transcendence for obedience, constancy, sacrifice, and resurrection since Paleo Cristian Art.
In present times, the lamb appears in Jewish liturgy, the Muslim “Eid Al Adha’, as a base for Christian rituals, and also in some Hindu mantras such as “Upanishad”.
“The Winner” is supported by a railroad tie from the New York to Key West railroad built by Flagler in 1892, which was to eventually reach Havana.
This sculpture is a metaphor of the constancy of re-inventing, and of the attitudes that make great changes possible.
