In this outdoor sculpture by Marlene Hilton Moore, the lower half of a face in a green patinated bronze is set at an angle on the ground. It leans towards a large bronze ear next to it. Classically inspired it has a contemporary theme--listen to others, oneself and nature. “Head to Ear and Silent, the head fragment as vehicle, reflects aspects of listening - the ear is dislocated from the head and placed in front of the lips so there is no impediment to hearing and the lips are silent to allow time for listening.” Marlene Hilton Moore
