Stacked Figure

 

Stacked Figure

This is the first of what I call, “Nested Figures”. It came about almost by accident when a torso I was carving broke when I laid it down. As I looked at the remaining piece I noticed that it was cracked as well, so I picked it up and dropped it on my carving bench breaking it again into three pieces, which I then carved into something new. The notion of nesting the pieces comes from the ancient art of carving stones to fit together in walls and other structures.
