Rondure combines the pure form of a sphere and the texture of bark to emphasize the true beauty and value of nature. The sculpture shows how humans manipulate the natural world. A dialogue is initiated that softly yet critically inquires the role of humankind and the future of natural resources and health of our environment. A sense of hope resides that humans will find a respectful and healthy balance with the natural world and ecosystems for the betterment of the environment and human existence.

Rondure is cast bronze and rests at the southeast property line of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and City Park together with a magnificent Shakespeare Elm Tree & Japanese Pagoda Tree. The site is the gateway to our city’s arboretum featuring hundreds of species and thousands of trees. Arboretum Map
