Sculpture: Metal on Aluminium.
When I designed this piece I was thinking of the Wilde Beast migrations in National Geographic when I was young.
This could make a nice Logo for a corporation that moves ahead of competitors by leaps and bounds.
If this sculpture interests you there is much more on this site. Go to the top of this page and enter "Arfsten" in the search box. You will see hundreds in many styles and themes.
Maquettes also make fine desk top sculpture and will come with a stone base to sit on.
There is also some on you tube that shows it in the round with some conversation to explain things. Search “You Tube Richard Arfsten sculpture” also Pinterest boards “Richard Arfsten Architectural Abstract sculpture”.
The major value in these pieces is the maquette aspect. The maquette is a three-dimensional model or blueprint that works to show that the design is accurate and can be built larger. A metal fabricator measures off of it to make the patterns to build from, just like a tailor uses your measurements to make your clothes. When presenting ideas to a client for consideration most sculptors submit a concept drawing on a piece of paper. A maquette is the actual sculpture in miniature. When you lift it up to view at eye level it will depict the sculpture exactly as it will be seen in real life as if you were walking up to and around it.
For a small additional fee you can buy the enlargement rights to have a metal fabricator of your choice build it to any size out of any kind of sheet metal. The maquette is lightweight - it can easily be mailed anywhere. Building the enlargement close to where it is to be used saves in transportation cost and import duties and you control all the details and eliminate my supervising fee.
