This extra large original solid gneiss sculpture on granite pedestal is one of the latest artworks of the skillful Bulgarian contemporary professional sculptor Ognyan Chitakov, deeply inspired by naturalism, modernism and nude art. Gneiss material can be described as recycled rock. It had been once granite, marble or other type of rock, then it had been grinded naturally, eroded and then layered in another type of rock - gneiss. It is like an immortal matter, found in riverbeds. Also each gneiss boulder has kept the information of the water, the river, where it has been found. It had been rocked and rolled in the waters, where its final shape and smooth surface had been created. That's why each gneiss boulder carries with it a lot of natural dynamics and motion. They are felt and seen on its surface and in their inside. The artist's concept is to take out with minimal interference a shape, which is touching the viewer. The artwork is one extraordinary stone masterpiece and exquisite modern home décor. !!! The main gneiss rock boulder of the sculpture is naturally full of semi precious Almandine stones, which can be seen all over its surface !!! "The stone material is alive and has a soul. I never ignore it and its gravity as well. I try to give each artwork the feeling of lightness." ... by the artist
