description

67" x 62" x 17" This original, handmade sculpture was created by carving a dead, spalted Maple Taproot to form the bodies. The base was created by hand-forging a curve of 3/8" x 3" welded flat steel. The shape of the taproot inspired the sculpture, which was created in a sustainable manner, using only hand tools, including: adzes, axes, chisels, and rasps (NO power tools). This life-sized piece is both made from natural materials and embodies the beauty and spirit of the natural world.
