This wax relief sculpture is cast in 100% pure beeswax in a mold taken from one of my original sculptures. The sculpture was modeled after a marginalia figure (pictured) from The Graduel festif à l’usage de Notre Dame la Riche de Tours. It was hand carved, painted with oils, and given a gold leaf treatment. The mat is hand cut from a thin sheet of red wax. The 7x9 solid wood frame features gold leafed accents.
malacomorph hybrid. The hybrid is a mixture of bird, man, and horse . the rear body is hidden in a sinistral shell giving the impression of being strongly ribbed, and has two wings.
The Graduel festif à l’usage de Notre Dame la Riche de Tours is an illuminated manauscript in the collection of the Bibliothèque Municipale in Amiens. It is dated 16th/17th century.
