Being raised in a tropical climate, lugufelo has often found inspiration in the lush, tropical vegetation of his native Venezuela. Majestic Palm is a perfect example. Palms have an important part in history. In many historical cultures, palms were symbols for such ideas as victory, peace, and fertility. The upward shape of the statue is reminiscent of strength and power, while the double leaf construction allows the viewer to imagine being wrapped in its peace and serenity.

This gorgeous sculpture is part of the private collection in Coral Gables, FL.
