Celestial Historical Monolith Stela We (Flash Gordon and I) heard some strange sounds on the radio as we were in the vicinity of a planet with a pink and gold atmosphere. As we flew the ship closer to the surface we found a city with very interesting architectural buildings. When we landed I took some pictures with our 3-dimensional camera. After we explored the ruins I replicated some of them in our replicator on the way home. I wanted to make sure I had something to remember the experience by when I woke up in the morning. This is a celestial historical monolith stela that was at the edge of the city. It was about 500 feet tall and made out of cast iron just as this maquette is. Although this one is a bit smaller. LOL Being a foundry man I was extremely interested in how something of that magnitude could be made. I wish the inhabitants were still alive so I could have talked to them. This maquette will come with a thick stone base that is polished on top and rough cut on the sides. Enlargement Rights are not included in the price of the maquette. If you have an interest in having this design enlarged please contact me for details. If this sculpture interests you there is much more on this site. Go to the upper right top and enter "Arfsten sculpture" in the search box to see many styles and themes of my work. If you have an interest in my sculpture there is a lot of it on you tube that shows it in the round with some conversation to explain things. Search “You Tube Richard Arfsten sculpture” I also have a lot more sculpture that I am trying to find the time to put here on Saatchi. Google Richard Arfsten sculpture and hit images on the top of the opening page.

I have an ambitious approach to life ... and to art ... make something happen every day ... but most of all have fun doing it! A sculptor first, and now working in 2D, I do my best to do just that. Presented here are examples of some of my work. •• My sculpture runs the gamut from abstract, to figurative, to architectural. The materials and methods used are diverse ... from figures modeled in clay or wax, then cast in pewter or bronze ... to aluminum maquettes (produced by evaporative pattern casting) which serve as the 3D blueprints for the pieces that are enlarged and fabricated from sheet metal of all kinds. •• My 2D pieces range from abstract to figurative. You’ll find Originals done in oils or acrylic, one-of-a-kind monotypes, collages, mixed media paintings, and more ... I love working in all mediums. Some of my 2D work may be available as reproductions on this site. ••• MY FASCINATION WITH SCIENCE FICTION & MAKE BELIEVE - When I was in second grade, television was new and the hottest thing. The "Adventures of Flash Gordon" was my favorite program. There was only one kid in the neighborhood who had a TV. We, all the kids, gathered at his house for every episode. I was a huge fan of the characters. Flash was cool and my hero. Dale Arden was OK but Princess Aura was way cooler because she was naughty. Ming The Mercilous was very interesting. But Dr. Zarkov and his super duper telescope - that could see into time forwards and backwards, far and near - was the star of the show for me. The spaceship was really hoakey. You could see the wire that it was traveling on and the little puffs of smoke coming out of it were a joke, even for me. But the concept of the show was magical. Also at that time there were radio shows about space travel and aliens and monsters. I would listen to those shows with my grandfather as I sat on the floor next to the big wooden box radio so I could get the full impact of the sounds. •• These shows inspired me to draw spaceships, mostly "new and improved" versions of Flash's ship. I taped them all over my bedroom walls. At night I would travel with Flash. We would go to distant parts of the Universe and explore ancient ruins - like what I saw in National Geographic when I was not looking at the bare-breasted girls of exotic cultures. (I think artists and sculptors, are to a large part, voyeurs.) Those memories pop up in my art over and over. •• Faces also intrigue and inspire me.
