Add to Collection

This Marble sculpture depicts a pair of abstract figurative female forms, carved from a single 2000 pound block of Colorado Yule Marble over a 2 year period, finishing at about 600 pounds. At 6 feet tall it is a stunning piece; polished to show the beauty of the material at close viewing, and deeply formative, relevant in any venue. Indoor or out door display.
