Dr. King (older) by Richard Arfsten

Description

This is an example of my ability to work from newspaper clippings and news reel footage. It is extremely difficult to get a likeness when you do not have a model to sit for you. I do portrait commissions in many styles from traditional to abstract to contemporary. Most work is done in clay and then taken to a art foundry and cast in bronze. Other materials I work in are cast iron, aluminum, plaster, concrete, paper mache, and ice. Recently I have begun to work in stone and wood. Carving a likeness is extremely difficult. It is a thousand times more demanding than modeling clay. Once you take of too much off you cannot replace it like you can with clay. It is also a lot harder to move stone than clay. This bust is heroic size meaning it is larger than life size. This sculpture of Dr. King is available in hydro stone for $500 and in bronze for $15,000.00 Size: 18"H x 10"W
18.00" h x 10.00" w
