Wise And Wonderful
This piece is an owl's head - the pointy beak between the holes for the eyes. The white area shows its wisdom, and it literally has eyes in the back of its head.
A really stunning yet simple piece from one of our top young abstract sculptors. Here, Antony uses his wonderful finishing skills to contrast the intense shine on the smooth surfaces with the pristine detailing on the area of white detail, which has been finished with a chasing hammer.
This is a real gem of this year's collection, and Antony chose it as his entry into the National Arts Merit Awards competition, won in 2008 by his best friend Onias Mupumha.
An exceptional medium-sized sculpture, perfect as an indoor centrepiece, and it represents superb value for money for an original work of art.
