Michael Tieman sculpture “Courage”built as a symbol of hope in tribute to those who have, who are and who will battle Cancer

Michael-Tieman-CourageMichael Tieman's sculpture “Courage” A sculpture standing in tribute to those who have, who are, and who will battle Cancer.

While Tieman has never had cancer himself, he has dealt with the pain of watching four women in his family fight the disease, one of them tragically losing.

In 2008 Tieman's younger sister, Connie, lost her six-year bout with breast cancer, the day before her 25th wedding anniversary and a week before her 50th birthday. Tieman found inspiration for his next sculpture in a dream soon after.

I had the dream for about a month or so, before I finally decided that, you know, somebody's trying to tell me something."

The dream gave birth to "Courage", a 36-inch bronze sculpture, built as a symbol of hope in tribute to those who have, who are and who will battle Cancer.

“I have had such a wonderful response, not only from the local and national press,” says artist Michael Tieman, “but especially from those who came to her unveiling in Cannon Beach and her dedication at Akron City Hospital's Jean and Milton Cooper Cancer Center this last year. At both ceremonies I explained that I had incorporated ideas and stories of healing from survivors into the very body and soul of “Courage”. Art heals and I thanked them for making her a healer, and I hoped she would give back to them as much as they gave to her.”

You can find her at the Haystack Gallery in Cannon Beach
