#151 Remarque - "California Roost"

My goal while designing and modeling this quiet pose of the California Quail (also known as the Valley Quail) was clarity of silhouette and organization of positive and negative shapes. 

Harmony and the simple placement of the figure in nature is evident as vision accepts the negative shape and thinks of it as a totally separate form.  Sculpture is the arrangement of 
shapes - both positive and negative.

Sculpture is the study of a thousand silhouettes.
                                                       - Rodin

This work is one of five new sculptures being introduced at the 
Autry Museum's Masters of the American West Show and Sale.
