New sculpture on display at Memphis Botanic Garden

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Botanic Garden unveiled a new sculpture for visitors to enjoy as they explore its 96-acres.

On display in the Conifer Garden, one of the 28 specialty gardens on the property, is Destino III, which was designed by Roy Tamboli.

The sculpture was created in 2007 and is on a long-term loan to Memphis Botanic Garden.

It was made of bronze and speaks of transformation.

"This organic sculpture is about transformation over time and evolving to a more meaningful reality with a greater purpose. It's about the partnership and interaction between the individual and the changing universe we are inseparably part of. As we are transmuted by unanticipated twists of fate and outside forces we learn to accept and work with new states of being. If we are fortunate, the greater forces eventually lift and propel us along our path in a very positive way," Tamboli said.
