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.

I have a whole series of little nude people in singles and pairs, several of which I’ve already sold over the years. Unfortunately this is one instance where my terrible photography skills come into play, since it’s hard for me to capture the nuances of texture and color in these pieces. They were all created in a soft, malleable wax and then cast in bronze using a method that destroys the original, so they’re one of a kind. The color comes from a chemical patina that has slowly developed with age. All of the figures in this series are in the same scale, though many of them have a rather more adult theme — I’m starting tame.
This particular figure always reminded me of a fallen angel, and though I had several ideas for adding wings over the years, I ended up liking him as is. He’s designed to lay on his face on a flat surface, but you can see the front of the figure is fully detailed, below, except for the actual faces, which I left eerily blank. I keep him displayed on a black surface under my glass coffee table, a subtle surprise for anyone who notices it. Not that I have a lot of people over, heh.
