Description: This bust of an African American man creates a strong presence in any space. His face is calm, yet exudes a focused awareness, due to the combination of strong facial angles and forms. Each part of his face; the noise, the mouth, the lips, the ears, are confident with what they are, even in their mildly eccentric form. He’s neither happy nor sad, he just is, and that’s plenty. The faceted approach to the surface adds a great layer of fine complexity.
