The Mating call, or saxophone buddha
I set out to make a saxophonist as close to an egg shape as possible. I don’t know why. The result, “THE MATING CALL” or “SAXOPHONE BUDDHA” reminds me of an air-filled, bloated, spring frog singing for a mate. Others say he looks like Buddha. Hence, two titles, since both the carnal and the spiritual are wrapped up in one piece. All from an egg shape; who would have thought? Maybe something about an egg holding a life spirit asserted itself.
