This is a sculpture of a Bronze Age amazon woman that came about because of the remarkable amethyst geode that reminds me of a cave setting.
She is my rendition of someone who is equally at home with a sword and cooking. The contrast of the sword and a cooking pot caught my sense of fancy.
This version of a bronze age woman was cast in natural bronze. Her sword is cast in silicon bronze and plated in nickel. The pot was fabricated from brass and copper. This is a sister sculpture to my other work "Spiegelbild im Spiegel".
The natural bronze contains 90% copper and tin. The silicon bronze contains 95% Cu, 4% Si, 1% Mn.
