Sculpture description:
In this contemplative bronze head, the influence of the classical is given a contemporary twist. The simplicity of line is contrasted with the flowing line of the hair. The polished bronze gives the piece a lively dynamic in its surface reflections.
Artist's comments:
This piece started life as a stone carving which gave it its classical influence. Starting with this, I wanted to find that point between figurative and abstract, creating a recognizable head but with abstract qualities.

This piece came to the notice of Lord Putnam in 2000 for having the qualities he was looking for, to commission a new award trophy.

Dear Plamen and Peter,

I am please to advise you both that `Acceptance` arrived yesterday afternoon and I unwrapped her in the early hours of this morning.
She is without doubt the most beautiful item I have ever possessed.
She is not a mere statue, she is sublime and a real presence in our lives already.
Her slenderness and beauty is a sheer joy to behold.
