MARLEY.....What a joy to create and a joy to share! Marley came as an inspiration from working on another project. This is the first sculpture by this artist. While working on a previous project using fabric tubes, the inspiration for the lion emerged. The body is constructed with foam, muslin, gesso, leather and fabrics. There are 4,500 fabric tubes, all made individually then attached to create the lions mane. The body is covered with snippets of fabric and the eyes were created using 1" marbles. Marley took nine months to complete after researching skeletal and muscle structure, tools and materials, designing, creating a pattern, carving and finally finishing, Marley has taught this artist anything is possible and is looking forward to see what next emerges!
