The Spirit’s Flight

The Spirit’s Flight

1969
Carrara marble, Serpentine
My studies of post-tensioned marble started with this piece. The fact that alternating colors of marble somewhat resemble the layered use of different marbles in Tuscan churches is purely fortuitous and is not a stylistic derivation.
