British artist Martin Donlin finally got to visit his own installed piece in San Antonio. Donlin’s “Hippocrates,” an 18 ft. by 30 ft. wall-mounted glass sculpture, dominates a wall that’s the transition from the old Methodist Hospital, to the new Sky Tower.
“The old building finishes and the new one begins. So we’ve got him kind of looking backwards and forwards,” he said.
The installation is highly symbolic. If you look carefully, the wide view suggests the Rod of Asclepius, which was wielded by the ancient Greek god of healing and medicine.
