Duck Weight 115kg
40 x 51 x 38 cm (15 3/4 x 20 1/8 x 15 in)
In 'Duck Weight', Bridget McCrum masterfully combines her gift for avian form with an informed knowledge of ancient stylisation. Carved from dark grey, close-grained Kilkenny limestone, the sculpture's gracefully compact mass (partly inspired by Mesopotamian stone weights) is enlivened by subtle areas of surface texture, including chevron details suggesting the bird's anterior feathers.
This unique piece is particularly suited for garden display, where both rain and sunlight dramatically enhance the limestone's natural intensity. It is also available is a bronze version of slightly different dimensions (edition of 9).
