Joy, cast stone 3/4 figure sculpture
70 x 68 x 30cm
Available in a variety of individually applied patinas, images show a Verdigris finish. She is frost proof and weather proof and the patinas are permanent and colourfast.
This is a 80% life sized figure. She was inpired by a pose used by Rodin, I thought that the pose was very exciting as the back muscles and bone structure are put under strain creating beauty and interest in the pose. I changed the pose quite considerably, changing the position on the head and softening the angularity of the pose. The detail of the face and hands and feet are crucial to the overall integrity of the piece. But keeping the tension. I spent a long time on the face to get the exact look I wanted. Each piece is cast and individually finished by me.
