#756 "Flightless Tondo"

"Flightless Tondo" (Wall Mount)
17" Dia 3"H
Ed. Size 25

The Italian word rontondo (round) coined the term tondo and was used during the 
Renaissance for religious and mythological imagery.  The circular shape has 
challenged sculptors and painters since Greek antiquity.

I have been influenced by classical sculpture since my student years 
at the Kansas City Art Institute and the time-honored tondo seemed 
like the perfect format for my new creation – “Flightless Tondo”.  
The inspiration for the bas relief was provoked by the discovery of 
a dead bird in snow under my studio window.
