Donald “Skip” Conover
Dr. Robert Mannis and I commissioned Sculptor Tim Holmes to create “The Water Bearer” as a regular award given to someone who has made a significant contribution to enhancing the study of the work of Dr. C.G. Jung.
Dr. Mannis is one of the Founders of The Jung Society of Washington, D.C., and has lectured to Jung societies throughout the United States.
He is deeply interested in Dr. Jung’s work and its worldwide dissemination.
Dr. Jung’s vast body of work has improved people’s lives worldwide, not only in psychotherapy but in the fields of religion, the arts, business, and politics.
Recipients of this award may be laymen as well as Jungian Analysts, Astrologers, Artists, and many others, depending on their contributions to their fields. If you know some deserving persons, we are accepting nominations.
My name is Donald Conover, and I have been studying the work of Dr. Carl G. #Jung for 35 years. In 2010 I created the Archetype in Action website Archetypes in Action, to promote Dr. Jung’s work, and in 2016 I created the Carl Jung Depth Psychology Reading Group on YouTube Carl Jung Depth Psychology Reading Group, where you can find over 1,300 videos displaying my own work in this regard.
This fundraiser aims to create a perpetual fund to award additional copies of “The Water Bearer” to deserving individuals.
Tim Holmes’s wide variety of works created as coveted awards of this kind can be found here: https://timholmesstudio.com .Tim was the first American Artist to be granted a one-person show at The Hermitage, the World’s largest museum, in 1993.
His work has been featured as the U.N. Peace Prize for Women; China Peace after Tianamen Square; and in awards made to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Elias Chacour of Galilee, Vaclev Havel, President of the Czech Republic, and Coretta Scott King, widow of Martin Luther King Jr., in addition to many others.
“The Water Bearer” is part of a series of 45, five of which have already been awarded.
As “The Water Bearer” is also the symbol of The Aquarian Age, which is just beginning, other groups may wish to offer “The Water Bearer” as annual or periodic awards in #Astrology groups or other fields.
A larger-than-life version of “The Water Bearer” is in creation and will be installed in Helena, the Capital of Tim’s home State of Montana, in 2023, and hopefully in leading museums worldwide.
