In this case the artist took the moment when the elephant gets up on its front legs. This exquisite solid bronze sculpture of an elephant rests on a vintage iron weight base. The sculpture is handmade with incredible details, the artist is able to capture a moment frozen in time but on the same time simultaneously creates both movement and static effects. The animal figurative sculpture inspired from imagination of the artist who has modeled the inert wax cast of the sculpture, which is the soul of the final result in bronze, creating an art piece yet modern and contemporary. His very personal technique is to manually apply each individual little piece of wax until the desired effect is achieved. The final results is a bronze sculptures that is smooth and rough at the same time that interprets the real movements and attitudes of the animal in an incredible way. The roughly modeled raw material recalls the post-impressionist period and brutalist style's sculpture in the manner of Giacometti. The artist is confident with his manuality and with the techniques of working with wax, clay and metal, as well as welding, soldering and shaping rigid materials, the basic skills necessary to work with bronze. This animal sculpture is casted in Italy using very traditional techniques, the noble burnished bronze has now a shiny gold highlights and a great patinated finish.
