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

~~~

As The Maiden Collection blocks dwindled down to the last remaining few I decided to carve a sculpture that would pay my respect to the nature of not just the stone, but the process involved in creating the series, which is why Coliseum retains not only a plug and feather split face but the actual holes drilled to accommodate them.  And yes, I do think it calls to mind those crumbling, formerly splendid, Roman amphitheaters to be found across Europe, the Mediterranean, and far, far beyond. But what makes this piece extraordinary in my eyes is that it was cleft in a single blow from the heart of Mabel… the Spirit of the Stone, the Heart of Colorado Yule Marble.
