Statuette - River god

The left arm between biceps and wrist is broken away. Place of Origin Florence, Italy (made) Date ca. 1580 (made) Artist/maker Giambologna, born 1519 - died 1608 (maker) Materials and Techniques Terracotta Dimensions Height: 31 cm, Width: 39.4 cm, Depth: 25 cm, Weight: 8.400 kg Object history note This clay model or bozzetto, dating to about 1580, is constructed of lumps of clay rapidly pressed together to produce the broad outline of the features, form and musculature.

The results of the thermoluminescence testing suggest a later date than expected which raises the possibility that the sketch was made for a different unidentified scheme. Historical significance: The statuette is a dramatic re-working of the Graeco-Roman type of River God, usually shown lying down and supporting itself on one elbow, so as to fill the outside angle of a classical pediment.

I have now cut and stitched together the four main parts of the helmet, and then shaped the wet leather over the yard sale plastic original.

Space Helmet: It Ain't What it Seams

The toy astronaut helmet serves not only as a pattern source, but also as a shaping form. It reminds me of the underwater helmets worn by the crew of the Nautilus, with its roundedness. At the end of yesterday's blog I decided that the plain exposed seam I had tried (and was planning for the entire helmet) wasn't the best choice, so I ripped out the one seam that I had done, and restitched it. I replaced the side seams with overlapping seams, and for the center seam I chose a butt seam (since an overlapping seam has to favor one side or the other, and won't be symmetrical).

There are three different types of handsewn seams that I use in my leatherwork: Overlap, butt and plain. The plain seam can add structural strength and really emphasize the seam line, as can be seen on my firemaster's helmet. Puck Collective. Graphic Artists Group News. TENORI-ON.

Is this really a sculpture?

It is a hyperrealist sculpture by Jamie Salmon, who uses materials such as silicone rubber, fibre glass, acrylic and human hair. Incredible detail! Also see: The Hyperrealist Sculptures of Ron Mueck Notes from the artist (from bio): I like to use the human form as a way of exploring the nature of what we consider to be “real” and how we react when our visual perceptions of this reality are challenged.
