Michael Dunbar’s bronze maquettes and large-scale abstract sculptures combine high-tech engineering with the sensuousness of natural forms. His machine-like sculptures resemble industrially designed machinery, from the intricacy of a clock or sextant to the massiveness of shipyard cranes and equipment for moving and tilling the earth. Another, larger sculpture by Dunbar titled Cassiopeia can be seen on the FIA lawn.
