Gibbouse Selene

soapstone carving of abstracted female figure

Gibbous Selene
Figure Abstraction. Soapstone. 1998.
This little figure was completed in the dead of winter in Montana, while calving out my father's Black Angus herd. I sculpted her during my night shift, sitting by the wood burning stove, with the Northern Lights waving milky fingers at the snow-bound northern horizon, the 40 below zero cold crushing ever inward.
The dark soapstone was aquired on a trip to Alaska in 1991.
