Small, whimsical abstract redwood sculpture representing a partially developed child during the early stages of pregnancy. The infant form has a simplistic torso with short protrusions that resemble arms and a smooth rounded head with a crescent shaped appendage curving upward. The sculpture form has finely polished highlighted areas that interact gracefully with the gnarled burl wood counterparts creating a visually intriguing composition. This unique sculpture has been composed with several redwood burls that have been carved with chain saws, shaped with grinders and hand crafted to further enhance the natural forms. After thorough sanding, the wood designs are assembled with multiple steel rods and sprayed with a durable clear oil, revealing all the natural wood colors and exotic grain patterns. The smooth, polished surface areas are later treated with a clear satin polyurethane that is applied by hand to accentuate and embellish certain areas of the sculpture design.Due to the nature of redwood burls, each sculpture is totally unique and cannot be duplicated. Although it is possible to create similar designs, they will never be exactly the same. All of the natural redwood used to create these sculptures has been reclaimed from the underground portions of fallen trees which have been victimized from winter storms, landslides or forest fires, therefore no living trees have been utilized. All sculptures are signed and numbered by Daryl Stokes and include an artist certificate of authenticity.
