"Baboon Mask" Contemporary Soapstone Sculpture by Mike McCarthy

850.00

“Baboon Mask”, 10”w x 9”d x 14”t, is a contemporary sculpture carved from soapstone. This particular variety os a very soft form of the stone. This piece started out as a realistic baboon face. I quickly realized this would not work. The stone was a very odd shape that did not allow for as much depth for the eyes as I originally wanted. I decided to change and go with a completely different direction and make the piece an abstract. I drilled all the way through where I had the eyes. After I did that, I was really happy with the depth it created and decided to go back to the baboon, just as a mask rather than a realistic piece. Carving stone is always a negotiation!
