Part child and part flower, this playful work by Lebanese sculptor Nadim Karam engages us in the realm of fantasy. Within the petals are overlapping characters taken from the artist's rich vocabulary of whimsical forms, reminding us of his larger family of city sculptures which he fondly terms "Urban Toys". Nadim says of this sculpture, "Wishing Flower is the instant when childhood dreams, innocent and fantastical, scatter their magic to the wind".
