My brother had me over again yesterday to help with his sculpture. It is a piece that comments on the banks. Essentially it is a granite slab at the bottom, then a stack of stones (actually taken from a now defuct bank building - nice touch!). It is all held together by a central steel threaded bar with a piece of what looks like natural stone on the top. The stone used is of various types and much of it is close to crumbling. He has melted lead and poured it into various cavities and cracks, and it has the effect of melted wax running down a candle.
It is very well executed and has a strong political statement behind it. If anyone wants to exhibit it, he is open to offers. It would need to be exhibited in a secure location, as in addition to its value as a piece of art, it actually has a substantial scrap value as well. If you want to buy it, get in touch now...
