The figurative abstract ostrich was envisioned by the artist as deteriorated by space and diminished until it is in its Modern art frame. The texture seems to be that of wet concrete which creates a significant contrast off the smooth. The handmade Bronze Sculpture was molded using the ancient method of lost wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. It is mounted upon a marble base. Bronze Dimensions with Marble Base: Height 18 X Width 12 inches. Weight: 12 LBS.
