Totemic Figure: 20.01; 51 cms high; paperclay.
This figure has a look of a totemic icon, and its darkness seems to amplify that. I was trying to find a way to include the arms and the head, but in an abstract way. I have found that if the face is too naturalistic, the body seems to disappear when you look at the sculpture, and for me, its the form of the figure that is important. So the head and the arms need to be art of an expressive whole. Still working on this!
