Spiegelbild im Spiegel

(1 customer review)

This work will be called Spiegelbild im Spiegel. The piece is intended to be a reflection of the modern day Wonder Woman.

The name is also a reflection of Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo Pärt, a simple arpeggio on the piano combined with a slow-moving melody line from the cello.

We can also reflect on the contrast between a super hero fighting evil and the tranquility of music as the perfect way to ease the stresses of the day.

Description

I cast my own sculpture of Gal Gadot, the modern day Wonder Woman.

Now, my bronze cast version is not exactly like Gal Gadot. Nor was it ever planned to be an exact replica. It was only designed to be similar. When I began to think about how I could reflect the similarity, without being exact, I had the idea to reflect my sculpture in an actual mirror and use the non-exact contrast as part of my art.

I discovered a place called Mirror Engraving in the Netherlands that laser engraves photographs in mirrors. I put the true image of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman engraved in the mirror and now have the non-exact version of my sculpture reflected in the mirror. This can be a contrast between what you actually see in the mirror and what you want to see in the mirror.

The mirror was mounted on a custom fabricated honey onyx stone so that it can be rotated in both the vertical and horizontal dimensions.

My version of Gal Gadot was cast in silicon bronze. Her belt, knee guards, headband and lasso were cast in yellow brass. Her bustier, sword, boots, and armbands were cast in white bronze. The complete figurine weighs 670 grams.

The white bronze includes 58% copper, 1% lead and various amounts of manganese, zinc and aluminum. The silicon bronze contains 95% Cu, 4% Si, 1% Mn. The yellow brass has 63% copper, 1% lead, and various amounts of zinc and tin.
