Faun Dance

69″X 21″X 15″
height with base = 7′
Silicon bronze

Faun Dance is my first sculpture in bronze.  It was fabricated from 1/8″ thick sheet bronze.  As I developed the design, I wanted to create interesting relationships between the sections, a sense of movement, and interesting open spaces.  I noticed that the bends in the parts gave them a resemblance to animal legs.  When my wife saw the completed sculpture she suggested the title “Faun Dance”.  It fit.  (In case you don’t know, a faun is a mythical creature whose lower half is goat and whose upper half is human.)
