Red Sandstone (Rosso Antico Marble base + slate base).
H 26cm x W 24cm x D 4cm / Base: H 5cm x W 39.5cm x D 8cm
Based on ancient stelae, stone slabs incised to honour someone's life in pre-historic and early Classical times. Found in the Mediterranean/ Black Sea area, they are deceptively crude and simple - each one is different but works within a specific set of rules that carefully balance form and harmony of line. I haven't tried to create a historic reconstruction, but worked within the rules making free use of contemporary letter-cutting tools and techniques. I playfully referenced the eye inclusions found in ancient portrait sculptures in the
British Museum by creating optional golden eye inserts using brass tacks. These can be permanently fastened, or not.
