This sculpture is a variation on the theme of “Looking”. I was using my muse, Sally, for the features and the detail of the hairstyle, and for the personality of the piece. It is not a portrait but has the essence of her. I have always admired the 12-15 century bronze heads from Ife, Nigeria, for their portrait–like naturalism, and it seemed appropriate to try to achieve the same effect.
