This is an original sculpture developed over a number of years from more crude prototypes, less defined examples, to the last sculpture in the series, not entered this year, a bronze sculpture with a copyright date of 1980. I approximated the year created on the glazed clay of 1980 based on the date etched in the bronze sculpture. It may have been created either before or after the bronze sculpture, I don't recall. Even if it was created after the bronze sculpture, I still consider it as a prototype of the bronze, because bronze sculptures have historically been considered a finer display medium, and the bronze was my end goal. An after the fact clay sculpture would represent an attempt to see if the work could be created in clay, which by it's entry in this years event, shows the sculpture can indeed be created in clay.
