From dusty clay in my parents basement, to polished bronze above ground.
In short, I created this sculpture in October 2009 in my parents basement and since then it has stayed there collecting dust. I’m looking to get funding to finally get it out of the basement, into a permanent medium and out into the world.
$3,125 is based on the estimated price of my local foundry for molding, casting and bronze patina.
About the sculpture:
A man desires to be what his environment tells him he shouldn’t. He is a man of physicality and strength, yet he hides in shame his thirst for knowledge where others cannot see.
The highest reward is a copy of the final bronze cast for $2250. The rest are pictured below, with their details on right.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Very low risk, as the sculpture has been completed since October 2009. Rewards need to be created (though sculptures already have molds made), so estimated delivery may vary depending on how many are required to be created.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
