Acrylic statue 100 ÅRSRINGAR
This statue by Mejaboda is a celebration of Finland’s 100 year independence.
It features 100 laser scored lines that each represent a year. The winter landscape is a result of UV printing an image with a transparency channel, giving a smooth transition between an image and complete see-through. The base of mirrored acrylic (on top of 15mm clear acrylic) also features a white print, which represents newly fallen snow on an ice lake.
As for the shape of the statue itself, it’s a peace dove. We convinced the acrylic (with enough heat) to twist 180 degrees to form the shape of a leaf being held in the beak of the dove.
