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.
