Warrior Shield Sculpture
I completed creating a new sculpture this past week. It is inspired by African Warrior Shields. This wood sculpture was created with construction materials and found objects. It measures 27 inches (.68 m) wide, 66 inches (1.68 m) high and 3 inches (7.62 cm) deep.
The metal straps were fabricated from a piece of sheet metal which I cut by hand and aged.
The three pieces of found driftwood represent three spears. They are installed in the center quiver.
Here are some closeups. This first one is a good photo to show the woodworking on the surface of the piece. I sculpted it to have a hand hewn look.
This is a picture to show relative size.
