Specimen #01114, 8/28/2000
Wingspan: 4 inches (10 cm)
Composition: 12 karat gold filled wire, purple niobium
wire, steel utility blades, golden fishhooks
Comments: Always did like this one, the dramatic purple
and gold seemed so regal. This was also my first sculpture
using a heavy coiled abdomen. Unfortunately, I managed to
completely wreck this sculpture when I was trying to spray
on a protective coating. I've tried to get the mangled coating
off but now it just looks worse... At least I have these old
pictures to show what it was like. Maybe someday I'll find
some way to salvage it in a "redux" variation.
