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:
Nude God Torso statue, By Nicholas Rowsell
Zeus Nude Naked Man`s Chest Male Torso stone Carving statue sculpture for sale for outdoors Outside In the Garden or Yard and Indoors Interior Decoration by The British Sculptor Nicholas Rowsell,
"Nicholas Rowsell`s sculpture of Zeus stands rigid and symmetrical. Portraying the qualities both of permanence and immovability.Its paternalistic strength possesses a masculine excellence that separates it from other classical sculptures on this theme. Emotionless and foreboding supernatural is perhaps what a God should be.`
Artist's comments:
King of the Gods seemed like a halfway decent challenge.
I have attempted to distinguish the physicality of this Deity and carve a superman who could also be a building or a temple in its own right. Rather than strive for blinding perfection (as that is what Zues is) I opted for an imperious stance; like a soldier standing to attention. Timeless and unknowingly ineffable.

Customer comment on 'Egret on Alert (Standing Water Bird Wader sculpture)' by Kenneth Potts
Ken, Peter

Thank you both, and especially of course Ken, for your trouble over the
egret sculpture. I am very glad to say that it is now installed in our
garden, and we are delighted with it. Lucy has decided it should be called
Elgar, in memory of the work you are currently doing, Ken.

I attach a couple of pictures showing Elgar the Egret on his stand and in
his setting above the rockery by the pond.

Regards

Tim, Devizes, Wiltshire, United Kingdom.
