4.5" L x 10" H x 4.5”D. I call this sculpture ‘Captured Heart’.
The entire piece is housed in a small wooden pine box that was cleaned, painted, given a coat of an extreme crackle medium and coated with polyurethane to protect the object. The box is full of about 15 small resin anatomical hearts hand painted with iron paint and then treated to give them a rusted patina, except one…which was painted red and given a coat of stain and several layers of polyurethane to protect it The red heart resides in the center of front These are all kept behind a wire caged front to hold them inside. Topping the box is a vintage wood finial recycled from a flea market bin. The entire piece stands on four pine legs that have been painted and protected with polyurethane. This sculpture was created to be free standing.
All elemental pieces in each Sacred Relic Studio sculpture are cast, and hand painted by me. (all 15 anatomical hearts).
