The Spirit of the Red Tail Hawk

Just landed, ready to fly, observant, noble and respected, the Red Tail Hawk is a common raptor of human environments. Agile in the cityscape and familiar in the rural hedgerow,

Red Tail Hawk is a survivor.

These Vermont hills have similarly survived and adapted to a rich heritage of human occupation. Precious soil and abundant rock have conspired to doom all but the most ambitious. Red Tail Hawk stands as a patient monument to the toil that takes place here.

ALIGHT is a collaboration of Cider Hill Gardens and Gallery and Myth Makers: Donna Dodson & Andy Moerlein. Myth Makers created this piece on site while in residence at Cider Hill, during the first annual outdoor sculpture show. Gary and Sarah Milek have created a visionary garden and indoor gallery in Windsor VT. This year they introduce monumental outdoor sculpture to the gardens, inviting 13 sculptors to contribute work that fits their exceptional setting. Myth Makers welcome commissions.

ALIGHT is part human yet mostly hawk. It rests fleetingly on this landscape,

blessing the place – passing no judgment, but poised to fly.
