'Unity' by Tolleck Winner

Creating this sculpture gave me a great joy. My initial thought was when I made this piece, thinking of families being united, then nations being united and finally thinking of world unity. Symbol of unity must have universal understanding.

'Simplicity' by Tolleck Winner

I believe in simplicity of life. I created this peace of work for Octavia Hill Charity, for their new building in Holland Park London. The staff who work in the building called one day to thank me for the piece of sculpture that gives them energy when they arrive to work in the morning. My work as a sculptor, I thought was done in this instance. Simplicity, in everything we do, works every the time.

'The Power of Money' by Tolleck Winner

Often people who say 'money is not everything in life' - they have lots of it. Money is the only man made tool that gives everything in life except health and happiness, though even health and happiness sometimes can be rectified by money. Some people say 'money is evil' - money can only be evil, if it is the hands of evil people. Money is the only tool can buy everything and more. There has not yet been proven system that can create a comfortable life for all. Nor Capitalism, Socialism or Communism has given the population of the world a comfort zone that we do not have to kill one another for money. Is there any system has really given the majority people life without poverty or stress? I like to think that maybe one day the leaders of the world will wake up and let all the people all over the world live in peace and harmony with one another. There is enough of everything for everybody. So why kill and destroy one another in the name of money, greed and power to control.

'Healing Time' by Tolleck Winner

We go through life without realising, there is a time in our lives we must take a few steps back and think of reflection and healing time.
No matter how healthy we are on the outside, but on the inside we need constant healing , whether it would be mentally physically or emotionally. The invisible force of healing time sometimes takes over our lives without realising how far we have gone into the oblivion.
