bass dream

I have made many sculptures of double-bass players.  I like the physical relationship between the bassist and the instrument.  It is very much an embrace and it is easy to see the two as one.  

In this marble carving I emphasized the feminine shape of the bass.  I made the head of the bass inspired by some of Constantin Brancusi's female heads.
