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

I’m not quite sure just what convinced me to take on this, the roughest toughest rough block of stone that I have ever tackled, before or since.  So formidable and abundant were Terrible Lizard’s intrusions that it almost seemed at times as if it were the marble that is doing the intruding.  Stark was the contrast between the masses and masses of iron-hard granite and that of the Colorado Yule Marble ensnared within it.   And so perhaps it wasn’t too surprising to see a formidable creature emerging, considering the sheer amount of brute force and energy I employed during his carving.   rough block, Terrible Lizard, Birdhaven Studio Workshop, Woody Creek, ColoradoHis smokey gray 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 single slab of Yule Marble.   Make no mistake though,  that menacing stare can quite make you j∪Mρ… should it happen to land in your direction.
