This is a sculpture of a heroic bronze age woman that some might recognize from Amazon mythology.
She is my replication of a bronze age woman who is equally at home with a sword and cooking. The contrast of the sword and a cooking pot caught my sense of fancy.
This sculpture came about because of the exceptional cave type setting of the Moroccan amethyst geode and the fact that I am working in bronze.
This version of a bronze age woman was cast in natural bronze. Her sword is cast in white bronze. The pot was fabricated from brass and copper. This is a sister sculpture to Spiegelbild im Spiegel.
The white bronze includes 58% copper, 1% lead and various amounts of manganese, zinc and aluminum. The natural bronze contains 90% copper and tin.
