Sculpture: 'virtual woman (Caryatid stainless Steel female statues)' by Toby Short
Nude Woman Female Girl Oversize Big/ Tall Abstract Stylised limited edition sculpture statue for sale for indoors inside by the Versatile British Sculptor working in Greece Toby Short. He Writes... "The Female Form has been coerced into becoming a hybrid device for the provocation of the mechanical element of male survival-compulsion. Who decides on her shape? The woman? The man influencing the woman? Or the woman influencing the man who is influencing the woman? She is crumpling under the pressure of a disproportionate condition of society to conform to a consensus of physical appearance-aesthetics
But is this unobtainable aesthetic ultimately more seductive because it transcends the elementary function of wanting and obtaining? A dynamic that ceases to exist if the goal is reached. Is this consumer limbo far more desirable than the product itself? With technology taking a precident will we come to inhabit a realm of singular potentiality beyond the need for reality?

"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." Thoreau
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
