"Of all the sculptures I have created over the years, “Wings” is one of my favorites. It’s a very therapeutic piece for me; it represents the freedom and the joy we so often lose while focusing on our demanding and busy lives. The mail-order glider becomes a symbol of our dreams and aspirations. With this creation, I wanted to express childhood and fascination with flight. To me, flight represents release from our restraints and rising above our problems. With flight, we often gain that all-so-important perspective on the world, on life. I feel like I have to take a couple of flights each year just to rise above the earth and rediscover some of that vision."  Gary Lee Price

"Wings" captures the dynamic moment of a young boy. The figure is dressed in overalls, his arms are outstretched, one extended vertically to guide the airplane and the other horizontally for balance. The sculpture is imbued with a sense of childhood, joy, and aspiration. The entire piece conveys movement and a celebratory essence.
