Predator / Prey
37" x 27"
This wall sculpture features quilted maple, figured walnut burl, zebrawood, movingui, sliced galls and aniline dyes.  Framed with black walnut.
"In the relationship between predator and prey there is often camouflage, concealment and trickery involved.  From the birds in the sky to the snakes in the grass, who's the predator and whose the prey?"
The largest snake, the flowers and the hill extrude outward from the background.
The birds and "snakes in the grass" are camouflaged with their background.  The snakes have a shading that gives them a three dimensional look and they appear to float above the background.
