Based on the original Apollo design made from brass, I wanted to explore the same design in bronze so that a chemical patina could be applied.
The resulting sculpture is one of my most successful and favorite pieces to date. The origins of the design are heavily influenced by Fibonacci, although the proportions of this form do not strictly adhere to its Math. As a highly aesthetic form, even being made from incredible rigid straight pieces of metal, the sculpture flows and curves from every and all angles, transforming in shape from the various view points.
This sculpture is ideal and best suited for an interior setting, with the bronze patina being lacquered and waxed to help prevent discoloration.
