Troy, The Maiden Collection, Colorado Yule Marble Sculpture by Martin Cooney

This piece was the first of a trio of ‘Beasts’ that include Swan Wave and Terrible Lizard, pictured below.

But just what sort of creature he is?   Difficult to say; a hobby horse? Sea horse?   I eventually settled upon the ‘horse’ whose timely intervention proved so decisive way back in ancient Troy.

Troy shares the distinctive shape and markings of the three waves that combine to shape Wave Power – Things One Two, and The Demure One, pictured below, as they were all laying side by side in the slab when I split it.

The angle and the nature of the intrusions in proximity to the pure white back are the obvious clues.   I’m always amazed by how the sculptures instantly become animated when I place them outdoors,  and this is especially true with  Beasts  such as Troy.

Throughout the winter I was captivated by the way the snow continued to shape and mold the sculptures, conspiring with them to create new, if albeit brief, artwork in the form of Snowmarble. Snow never falls the same way twice, and the sculptures emerged flaunting a different robe every time. The slightest deviation in the wind, the size of the flakes, the angle of the sun… all these conspired to transform the Sculpture Garden’s carvings.

As you can see from the photos, Troy is no softy piece of artwork.   Come to think of it, its actually difficult to summon anywhere on Earth he wouldn’t feel at home: blistering heat, arctic cold, gale force winds, massive hailstones… he can take them all. In fact he thrives in any sort of weather. To date has spent practically all his life out of doors here in Woody Creek, and as we get just about everything the weather can throw at us up here I’m sure he’ll take whatever is offered him comfortably in his stride.  However,  be kind and don’t forget to bring him in from time to time, for unlike his buddy Terrible Lizard, he’s a really a very sociable creature.
