32" apollo and life size apollo
I've now worked on the miniature for approximately 1500 hours and it has a jewel like quality that only a sculpture of this scale can have. The detail gives it a sense of intimacy acknowledging the sacredness and intricacy of the human body. I've rotated the pelvis and ribcage just a little more than the life-size creating more movement. The arm reaches forward just a little more and the foot pushes off with greater force. This figure is walking off the base. In some ways this piece has to be even more beautiful than the life size because at this scale sculpture soars or crumbles in precision!
