Reclining Figure with Bird

PEDESTAL SCULPTURE bronze  
10.5 x 17 x 5 in
28 x 43 x 13 cm

Edition # 2/12

Commissioned to create a life-sized reclining figure, Denning made two maquettes during a stay in a medieval hamlet in France. This is the cast of one of these wax maquettes, in a dark bronze patina. Smooth surfaces contrast with highly textured areas, as the figure seems to emerge from a block heavily worked with drips and carvings. As if a ruin herself, the figure’s arm and leg seem partially eroded away, while a bird lighted on her hand connects the sculpture to the present. Other patinas available. The full-size bronze in a small edition is titled: Caravella Y Falcon.
