Profile image of Sandra BorgesSandra later work is a result form her reflection about human relations. Sometimes looking through the stereotypes and sometimes through the eyes of a individual, it is always about how one personality is form and how one relates to the other and to other in society.
Working only with Portuguese stone (marbles, limestone`s and breccia), she also mix it with other media if the idea demands it. The result is very personal way to make art objects that link the tradition of stone carving with other materials and plastic languages.

Sculpture description:
Sculpture hand carved (no electric tools) in a quarry wall, inserted in the theme "De Abîme au Azur" ("From the Abyss to the Blue"), at the Les Lapidiales site, Port D`Envaux, France.
Artist's comments:
Using the hand, one of the most expressive elements of the human body, I tried to impress the idea of the effort needed to make a big carving as this and in this conditions, and also the amount of energy expended to build, bit by bit, an artistic career. It`s curious to see as the hand took shape how easily people identify it as an mountain climber hand. They saw the character suspended in the void and struggling to reach the next gripping point in the rock. In other words, they identify themselves with the needed effort to achieve a greater goal in their live.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

Thank you again for your wonderful and professional assistance throughout. I am so enjoying my "Running Hare"....I call her Lucy.
