Italian Portoro marble
58 x 23 x 14
An early work of mine from 1993 carved in beloved Italian Portoro. The piece shows the various stages of the sculpting process from hammering, to the cut surface, to the broken edge, to the polished surface. I like the split down the middle, the space in-between and the strength of the grain highlighted by the white vein that runs through time and space like a river.
