Sylph, mahogany sculpture of Cuba. Cédo Cédo
Mahogany sculpture of Cuba very high density and mounted on a metal base with a backsplash. Beautiful work of blacksmith.
It represents a woman with a cat, carved in high relief from a drawing by increasing a significant height to give it a very sleek look.
This piece of wood 50 * 8 * 6 cm did not allow a sculpture in the round.
Gift of a friend, now living in Montreal, she was transferred to another friend who was leaving for Paris. Arrival backpack, she was delivered directly by the traveler.
I tried to make the best use the entire piece of wood in order not to lose too much.
For the Cuban mahogany is the rarest and most precious mahogany. My friend brought back from Rio Coco, in the region of Meezquita Nicaragua.
Very dense and very hard this mahogany piece made me suffer for 3 weeks. It was the first time I worked wood; I find it less easy than alabaster, soapstone or limestone. I had to invest in small instruments, requiring great care, I found in drugstore to treat injuries, wounds…
I still think this mahogany kept its promises.
I told the saga of this sculpture on my blog http://www.sculpturecedo.blog4ever.com (you must copy this link in a search line of your browser or use the link you find directly in the left column my homepage here on ArtQuid).
This is unique.
