Terrible Lizard, The Maiden Collection, Colorado Yule Marble Sculpture by Martin Cooney

~~~

I was somewhat surprised to see a formidable creature emerging as I carved a particularly solid ashen-gray rough block block of Colorado Yule Marble, although given it’s quite brutal characteristics,  perhaps on reflection it is really no surprise at all,  considering the sheer amount of brute force and energy I employed during its carving.   His smokey markings clearly place him somewhere near Felucia within The Maiden Collection slab,   as the angled cut below the neck is a result of the same fault line that created the Nile boat’s triangular sail.       Having already explored animistic themes, including Swan Wave, Jonah, Guin and Son, and The Demure One,  I opted to accentuate the aggressive shape of this particular block (it had split in a very provocative manner),  and enhance the assertive nature of this particular rough block.   By this late stage in the carving of The Maiden Collection I had the benefit of no less than 35 consecutive opportunities to explore and develop the unique, and at oft times perplexing,   properties inherent within a slab of Yule Marble, and was therefore able to read the stone before me like a beautifully illustrated picture book.   Make no mistake though,  that menacing stare can quite make you jump… should it happen to land in your direction.
