Hacer dominates the LA landscape from West Hollywood to DTLA. His metal origami sculptures are all the buzz. One particular sculpture at LATTC ( Los Angeles Technical College) really caught my attention. Titled, "Education Gives You Wings To Fly," is a sculpure that looks reminiscent of a Greek Pegasus; A horse with wings, or better known a a pterippus. Bellerophon was noted for taming and riding Pegasus.
What I really liked about this sculpture is that it looks as if Pegasus is ready to take flight, mainly because it is standing on the back legs. This sense of motion is missing in most sculptures depicting animals and mythical creatures.
The red color really brings out the details. You can also see the under-carriage because of this position. I had seen Hacer's other sculptures in West Hollywood. They were nice, but they didn't have this sort of stance. This is a very powerful message and it is brought to life in this Pegasus rendition.
