Two Bas Relief Sculptures

These bas reliefs are @ 12 x 16 inches. They both depict my son, Dominic as a young child. The standing pose reflects his adventurous first steps. The seated pose relates to a game we used to play at Cafe Du Monde. We would take a bag of Cheerios and I would savor a delicious cup or two of coffee with chicory while Dom would enjoy the procession of trucks moving past the cafe, munching on Cheerios.

Both reliefs were originally modeled in a water-based clay. The standing pose was kiln-fired and thus remains a one-of-a-kind piece. A mold was made of the seated pose which was then cast in plaster, with the surface painted.
