Don Q Quixote is a Small Man but had Big Dreams

$2,400.00

When I first starting working copper, I over clad with copper, a 5 foot by 2.5 foot sculpted wood form with a granite base.  So that when I was finished, I had a piece of art that weighted 210 pounds.  Don Q was my attempt to lighten the finished project.  After applying the copper to the finished form, I removed it and reassembled it using copper rivets.   It went from 24 pounds to 4 pounds.  After I mounted it to a sandstone rock that I picked up in Arizona, the weight was back.

I really didn’t carve this with the intent of making this look like a waist coat when finished, but what can I say … it just does.
