About the Artwork

Slightly Abstract Head of Beaudicea statue for Uotdoors outside in your Garden or Inddoors Inside your house by Teresa Wells, member of the Royal Society of Sculptors, who writes…
” Boudica, the legendary Queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe, led an uprising of the Iceni, Triovantes and others against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire in AD 60 or 61. She went on to destroy Camulodunum  (modern Colchester), at that time a RNoman outpost for discharged Roman soldiers, and site of a temple to the former emperor Claudius.

It is alleged that she died shortly afterwards having poisoned herself.

The life size bronze bust ‘Boudica’ 2018, by the figurative sculptor Teresa Wells MRSS, draws inspiration from this important cultural symbol in the UK. A legendary beauty and ordinary human being avenging her lost freedom, (according to the roman senator and historian, Tacitus), the sculpture encapsulates her bravery in the fissure and ferric patina executed on the left hand side of her face.

Artist Comment

Teresa Wells MRSS creates emotive figurative sculptures in bronze, that celebrate man’s physical and emotional survival over adversity. Inspired by the question “How do Humans Behave?” she draws inspiration from the contours of athletes and ballet dancers to emphasise a physical strength, placing them in precarious poses to stress fragility. She employs an illustrative style that pertains to theatrical gesturing, with particular attention made in re-creating detail in the face, hands and feet. This creates a powerful and spiritual force, producing reflection on one’s own psyche. When combined with geometric architectural supports, in steel, bronze and stone, she shows a contemporary approach to bronze, lifting it off the plinth and making it appear less monumental and traditional. Teresa is a multi award winning member of The Royal Society of Sculptors, and is available for public and private commissions, interiors, landscape and garden sculpture.

  • The ArtParkS Guarentee

    All the sculptures on the website are described by the Artists themselves stating the materiel they are made from and their dimensions. If they are stated to be suitable for outdoors they have a guarentee of 10 years subject to the effects of weathering which will alter their colour and finish over the years unless you give them  regular cleaning and maintenance. For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss  lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid.
    Iron and steel will oxidise(rust ) and this falls outside our guarentee.
    Organic materiel like wood, bark willow is variable and depends to a great extent on where it is sited and you should discuss any guarentee direct with the Artist as this too falls outside our Guarentee.
