A stylized human form kneeling with a gift in hand. The gift itself is a wooden bowl with a stainless steel sphere in it. This sculpture is made with a variety of woods and stainless steel displayed on a granite base.
The Gift is another generation of the stylized human form I used in The Guardian. Like The Guardian, I focused on lines and shapes. I also used negative space to give complexity to the design without making it more complicated.
Another thing I kept in mind with this piece was that I wanted the bowl and the person to be two separate pieces of art. I wanted each piece to be complete and beautiful even in the absence of the other.
