With Bows On
Friday, July 16th, 2010
This is the second in my series of little bronze people, and as you can see they got quite a bit more risque. This couple, like all my paired people, comes apart at the point of contact.
They take a little twist to fit together, and I think of them like really porny Legos — though I’m pretty sure Lego wouldn’t be too happy about the comparison. Plus, they only go together one way.
Both figures were hand-sculpted in wax with a few extra details. The man has been decorated with waxed ribbon that cast into bronze, his package, eyes and hands all bound up in pretty bows. The woman has one high heel made of carpet tacks that fused into the bronze, the other seems to have gotten lost along the way — fitting, really, for the sort of activity they’re engaging in.
As with all the people in this series, there’s only select detail in the figures, she has one hand with distinct fingers while the other lacks discrete digits, and they only have the merest suggestion of faces.
These are, of course, only sold as a pair.
With Bows On, cast bronze approx. 7″ long x 5″ wide x 6″ tall when joined, $1299 with free shipping.
