Title: Lion Amongst Men
Size 2ftH x 4ftL Materials: Wood, Steel, Paint
I am creating a Lions head out of butcher block wood that will be constructed out of several interlocking layers. The Lion is representative of mans idea of power and simplicity while the sheet metal mask that will cover part of the face represents our current society and love of the new. Even with all the shiny new things we have underneath we are still simple creatures. This is a preliminary sketch of the idea and an in process image of the butcher block head. There will be gaps between the layers so that as you move around the work it changes its overall appearance.
