Work in Progress, The Maiden Collection, Colorado Yule Marble Sculpture by Martin Cooney

As with all major projects it came as something of a shock to realize that it was all over – that I had carved my last piece of The Maiden Collection.  All that remained was to take Work in Progress,  hollow out the center, engrave its Serial Number on the underside of the base,  and add my  mark.

I think that it diminishes this piece not one bit to acknowledge the fact that, although this was definitively the last of the 41 Maiden Collection sculptures, I had actually carved much of Work in Progress an illustrative piece very early on in the year as an aid for people to visualize the carving process.  Even prior to his completion however this piece received a lot of attention, for I think it serves as an excellent visual reminder that The Maiden Collection was indeed split and carved from a solid block of Yule Marble, a fact this is often times quite difficult for people to get their heads around.
