Sun Warrior is inspired by Cycladic and early Greek sculpture and above all by the burgeoning strength and power of a young boy turning into a man. These adolescent years are warrior-like as the young man destroys his boyhood and fearlessly engages in the new journey, ready to fight at any moment for his freedom.
The warrior in Nunan’s work has emerged as a symbol of the ‘fight for life’ and a metaphor for courage, strength, endurance and self sacrifice for the good.
