It’s always a thrill to stumble upon something as good as this in a place you never expected, in a collection you’ve never admired by an artist you’ve never heard of. But here it is!
I came across this last Sunday at the Pah Homestead Gallery in Auckland which, other than this, is at present mostly full up with piles of junk.
But this – this is very far from that.
I know nothing about the sculptor other than what I’ve read here (and I wonder whether it may be moulded from life?) but I would like to learn much more about him and his other work.
