Felucia is the sculpture I reach for when I am attempting to explain the mysterious effect created by splitting the stone, as opposed to cutting into it, for no other piece quite illustrates the point as this bold and dramatic carving. At the outset of course I had no idea I was about to carve a rather abstract Nile river boat, but as I began to work the odd-looking L-shaped block the image of the iconic triangular sailed craft plowing up and down the famous river soon came into focus, and before I knew it I was putting the bend in the sail, the lean in the bow, and the tip on the point of the mast. While this may look a little tippy it in fact holds a very low center of gravity thanks to the counter balance I carved into the base. The reddish orange spot is something of a mystery however, and evokes a nice ‘setting sun‘ effect against a menacing, thunderstruck sky.
