Coliseum / The Maiden Collection / Colorado Yule Marble
18.5 x 12.5 x 6.75″ / SN120903 / 25.4 lbs / $1,000
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 my Collection Series Marble Sculpture, which is why Coliseum retains the actual holes drilled to accommodate my one inch plug and feather wedges. I really think that Coliseum, at least to mind, brings to mind many a crumbling, formerly splendid, Roman amphitheater. But I suppose that, when all said and done, what makes this piece extraordinary in my eyes is that he was cleft, with a single blow of my mallet, straight from the heart of Mabel…Spirit of the Stone of Colorado Yule Marble.
