The Blackbuck is an East Indian antelope with striking spiraling horns and a stark black and white coloration similar to a panda`s. Timothy became fascinated with the compositional possibilities with the animal. Repeating small spirals within larger spirals of the horn are echoed by the slight spiral of the head and neck. The other challenge with this animal which interested him was the "color" pattern. Usually ignoring such patterns on an animal and focusing on the form; this was a necessary exception. With some creatures the pattern is such a defining characteristic it can not be ignored. Paying some homage to its coloration with the patina while remaining focused on form was an interesting challege. To not do so would be like ignoring the tiger`s stripes, the panda bear`s distinctive markings, or a leopard`s spots. The face patches and chest patch are slightly incised as well as using a whitened patina in those areas. Both the white and black are mostly translucent so the eye will concentrate on the form and maintain visual integrity of the sculpted lines and forms.
The base on this casting is Jerusalem Gold travertine; but is also available in many other types of travertine. Timothy welcomes your inquiries on stone options best suited to your tastes and needs. Modern digital scanning and enlargement techniques are a valuable tool for artist and collector alike. Through the marvels of these technologies I can offer mirror images of sculptures. Imagine 2 of these handsome creatures, one facing left, one facing right; gracing the entry way to your estate, garden, or summer villa. There are maquettes of this still available. The larger busts were enlarged 2.5 x from these studies. Please check my website for information and photos of these.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
