Sculpture: 'Leaf Vein sculpture 2 (Outsize Metal Steel Leaf statue sculpture Art)' by Colleen du Pon
This is a study of a Leaf, the skeletal structure is outlined in steel. Hung on the wall it creates beautiful shadows. It can be displayed as in the photos on a table, window ledge or mantle piece.
I love the Antoine de Saint-Exupery quote "perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but nothing left to take away" and in some ways this sums up what I was trying to do with the leaf. This sculpture is suitable for indoor display as it has a wax finish.
35 x 65 x 40 cm (height x width x depth)
approx: 1 ft 1 3/4 in x 2 ft 1 3/5 in x 1 ft 3 3/4 in
Indoors only (finish and/or material and/or size may be unsuitable for the garden)

And although I cannot afford the £xxxx for her Rainbow 1, I would love to own it, and would be happy to pay £xxxx. Thank you to you too Peter, especially for bearing me in mind, but also for q...
