DOLPHIN YOUNG Aqua Cast Marble
Originally a commission from an English entrepreneur, this sculpture manages to convey something which other configurations don’t. The form of a dolphins body is not only beautiful, but somehow excites something in us that our own bodies can not find. We are inexorably tied to earth by gravity, even when swimming our own bodies are not well adapted to being in water. Dolphins know a sense of freedom that we can not experience, and it is this perhaps that draws us to them. Couple that with intelligence and a comical nature, and they are hard to beat.
