Object: Venus 2

Materials: Fired Clay

Dimensions: 14 inches tall

My second attempt at a study of Charles Cordier's bronze "African Venus".

Seeing the bronze on a second visit to the Walter's Museum in Baltimore as well as larger casting at the Art Institute of Chicago resulted in her taking permanent residence in my brain. Since I took more photos of her, I decided to give a study in clay another try.

It is does not come close to the inspiration, but it was a way of getting her out of my head!

Venus 1 was my first attempt.
