Drilled Figure
Drilled Figure

A human figure reduced to very basic shapes, scarcely anatomical at all. A head sunk down into the shoulders, a hand to one side and feet like a doorstep.
On top of that the figure is drilled almost to destruction. Daylight showing through its form.
Yet the figure is resilient to all this and retains a character and strength. Despite the battering its taken it remains very human.
Portland stone.
Private collection.
