Edition of 25
Gloria III is an elegant figurative bronze sculpture of the female form by Nando Kallweit. The elongated, graceful subject rests her hands on a disc as though she is in command of her destiny.
Modelled on modern postures but with a nod to the importance of heritage through the stylised Egyptian-influenced head. The disk may represent the world, or the cycle of life – it is for the viewer to decide.
Nando carved the marque for the body from a piece of oak using a small chain saw. The marque is then used to make the cavity for a sand and clay cast bronze. The figure therefore retains the cut marks and wood grain of the original carving and give it a very organic feel.
Gloria III is produced in a small edition of 25 pieces. There has also created a smaller version – please enquire for details.
Nando hammers his mark into the base as well as stamping the edition number.
