TWINS

SINGLE

 

 

MEDUSA

 

 

 

Thinking of what kind of life would

 

survive the ravages of man,

 

I get a vision of jellyfishes swimming

 

around in dark waters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Medusa" is made of a green limestone from the

 

quarries around the Indian city of Udaipur.

 

It's sculpted in "Make Art In India" facilities in the

 

hamlet of Mamallapuram, Tamilnadu, India

 

The size of the original block was 30x40x120cm

 

 

ELEPH

 

 

 

Its' rather impossible not to be

 

influenced by my new

 

homeland India. 

 

ELEPH is a sculpture where 

 

the style of the body belongs to

 

Tamilnadus' rich image tradition

 

 The stone is a grey-black Granite

 

from Kanchipuram, 

 

the old capital of the Pallava

 

 

Dynasty, 6th century AD. 

 

This granite allows details almost as

 

delicate as in marble.

 

 The size of the original stone block

 

was 220x135x120cm.

 

 

SKYDIVER

 

 

I borrowed one of India's

 

more significant Gods to

 

depict a kategory of enthusiasts

 

who put their lives at risk

 

when they exercise the sport.

 

 

 

The grey-black granite is the same as for

 

the ELEPH

 

 

 

 

 

DIGITAL

 

 

Out of a block of extremely delicate

 

limestone from the hamlet of Pero

 

Pinheiro, Portugal, pops up

 

a figure holding a kind

 

of "Digital Card"

 

 

 

 

The size of the block was 200x60x270cm
