This is work in progress caliber and i dont think it is worthy of a Daily Deviation.

It needs to be complete.

This is simply beautiful. It's not often I see sculptures or statues this good in this day and age. I really hope this become a lasting masterpiece due to the quality of the artwork and the message behind it.

Evocative of Rodin. I'd love to see the maquette be a model for a life scale work.

Come visit me in Chicago. The bronze foundry under the Museum of the Art Institute can hot cast something like two tons of molten bronze. :D It's two levels below the street in a sub-basement. Saw it in the 90s. Some SAIC students smuggled a dead racehorse down there, made a mold from it and cast it in bronze, got the horse out before the professors saw it. They told me it had a heart attack out at Arlington race track and solved all their horse statue problems.

Wow. The resourceful nature of art students is impressive, and usually macabre : )
Bronze casting is so expensive, it limits my size. If I could learn how to write an art grant, I could probably do it. Thanks for the invite, though. Maybe when I have the funds : )

Mate... I dont see tragedy when I look at this. I see perseverance. Anyone else with his level of injuries would dead but this guy is STANDING! That speeks to me.
