8" x 10" x 5.5"
(20 cm x 26 cm x 14 cm)
The base of this sculpture is a Mariner's Compass block, created from 84 tiny pieces (with the center smaller than a penny), wrapped on a stretched canvas frame.
The person is sculpted from reclaimed aluminum wire, standing 3" tall (7.6 cm" from head to toe, securely wired to the base. The birds are tiny origami cranes, created from tissue paper then enameled to hold their shape.
I like to stomp next to the pedestal this rests on, to make the person and birds wiggle like they're in a lively struggle.
