There are so many positive thoughts living within this little sculpture of marble from Carrera, Italy.
The stone was gifted to me from a dear friend.
This stone was more of a challenge to my limited hand tool than a different piece of Carrera marble I worked with a couple of years ago.
I thought of my mother, who was so very patient. She was so very proud of her Italian ancestry.
This sculpture is named Acyntha. It was my mothers middle name. As a child, I had a difficult time pronouncing this name.
The stone is about 5 3/4 inches tall.
My challenge was to allow the cleavage points to remain and only sculpt where cuts had been made when this piece was separated from a larger stone.
It is pin and sleeve mounted on a piece of wood which I believe is walnut.
This little sculpture will be shown during the 2021 Art's Alive show in La Conner, WA.
