$5300.00
Her face is life-size and her hair is blowing back in the shape of a guitar. She is wearing a hammered and torched copper scarf around her neck that reappears behind her to form the guitar neck as if it were blowing in the wind. The entire piece is slightly larger than an actual guitar.
She would look great in a recording studio or reception area.

"Leonardo da Vinci" Carved into the paper of five volumes of Encyclopedia Britannica / 1957 Edition. He is within these actual volumes as I try to include my subjects in all of my book carvings. This carving is based on the well-known self-portrait sketch done in red chalk on paper.

Since these carvings are done in actual books, I have the opportunity to reveal text that I feel is relevant to my subject even though the text is not actually in context to the subject. Leonardo da Vinci was a scientist as well as an artist. He lived and worked in a time when religion was more prominent and powerful than politics or science. I have found both within these volumes. So, on the right side pages of the piece I have revealed the words "Catholic Truth" and on the left side pages I've revealed "Hydrostatic Equilibrium" which is the balanced state of fluid and a basic of physics. Revealing text within these books is a fun inclusion when the opportunity presents itself.

There is another interesting aspect of this piece in my opinion. The finish I applied darkened the carved paper portion giving it the appearance of grey stone.

11-1/4" x 8" x 8-1/2"

This piece is available. Please email lundycupp@comcast.net for price.
