Profile image of Tristan MacDougallTristan was educated at Winchester School of Art and gained a BA (Hons) in Sculpture. Feeling unfulfilled by his art school education he travelled to Italy where he studied drawing and sculpture in the classical tradition at The Florence Academy of Art. His intensive studies of the human figure, in Florence, provided him with the skills and ability to analyse the structure and form of the human figure in any given pose and to reproduce this in a lively and lifelike manner in clay.

Sculpture description:
After the Pre Rafailites Bas Relief Low Relief Sculpture Panel for Sale for Indoors Inside Interior Decoration by the Skilled British Sculptor Tristan MacDougall who writes....
"Throughout Greek Mythology there are various accounts of the love between Selene, the Titan Moon Goddess, and the mortal Endymion, a young shepherd prince. According to Apollonius of Rhodes, Selene loved Endymion with such intensity that she asked his father, Zeus, to grant him immortality and eternal youth; Zeus consented on condition that he remained eternally asleep. He was lain in a cave on Mount Latmos (The Mount of Oblivion) where his lover the Moon, driven by the strength of their bond, would visit him each night and appear in his dreams. Thus the rays of the amorous moon come to caress the sleep of mortals.
Artist's comments:
The initial inspiration for this relief came from G.F.Watts`s two paintings both titled Endymion from 1872 and 1903, as well as the bas-relief work of Gilbert Bayes
I found the story of these lovers along with the mysterious attraction of moonlight deeply appealing. The efforts and sacrifices lovers make to remain together are a common human experience and a theme prevalent in the art of cultures across the world

John Keats elaborated on the Greek myth in his poem Endymion beginning with the well known line A thing of beauty is a joy for ever.

Each edition is unique; I will change the size and shape of each tile within the bas-relief and also make subtle changes to some of the colours I use. Please let me know if you have any special requests in regards to this.
