Profile image of Nicholas RowsellNicholas Rowsell was born around midnight on the 17th/18th of August 1960 during a dry electrical storm, in Hackney, London. This fact, according to Nick, is "Perhaps the most interesting thing about me as apparently lightbulbs were popping like champagne corks" Nicholas first picked up a hammer and chisel with the intension of creating a sculpture in 1987`and has been carving one or more pieces of sculpture ever since and does not look like he is going to stop. Nick was working as a stonecladder on a major building project in Berkley Square...

Sculpture description:
Abstract Heads Carved Stone Unique sculpture for sale for Outdoors or Inside by Nicholas Rowsell whose mythical sculpture conjoins the two heads with two self consuming snakes that bind the two heads as without which they would tear themselves apart. The abstract detail in the two faces are distinctly different so as to imply magnetic opposites forced and bound together.
Artist's comments:
My inspiration for this piece lies in the realm of ancient mythology. Commonly associated with Appolo and Diana this image depicts the beginning and end of all things corporeal. Mankinds need to face his finite condition and inevitable death is portrayed by Janus who is predominant in both roman greek and babylonian cannon of dieties. Great fun to carve. As the idea was carved into stone directly the detail shortly followed without too much effort and the whole piece became a joy to carve.
