Stunning redwood sculpture with an abstract composition of a central character with three bold protrusions emerging from its head and upper chest. The character appears to have a subliminal human form or possibly the form of a strange creature. Three prominent polished, angular wood facets project dramatically, representing a state of self manifestation in which the central form becomes enlightened. As the sculpture is viewed from top to bottom there is a visual transition whereby the smooth geometric components gradually diminish and become more gnarled and organic at the base areas. The sharply angled burl wood facets provide deep contrasts with the contorted organic natural redwood burls.
This intriguing abstract wood sculpture has been created with numerous redwood burls and redwood roots that have been cut and carved with chain saws, shaped with grinders and hand crafted to further enhance the natural forms. After final preparation, the wood designs are assembled with multiple steel rods. The redwood components have been sprayed with a durable clear oil and hand rubbed, producing a matt finish which reveals all the natural colors and exotic grain patterns. Due to the nature of redwood burls, each sculpture is one of a kind and cannot be duplicated. Although it is possible to create similar designs. All of the natural redwood used to create these sculptures has been reclaimed from the underground portions of fallen trees which have been victimized from winter storms, landslides or forest fires, therefor no living trees have been utilized.
