About the Artwork

Character Portrait Bust sculpture, large head statue for sale for Outdoors or Indoors or Outside in the Garden by the very original and powerful sculptor Marc Bodie
” Marble dust, crushed slate bonded in resin, with rusted metal & acrylic paint. Although this is a portrait of Noel Clarke a BAFTA award winning UK Actor, director, screen writer, film maker, etc.. It is not necessary to know who he is to appreciate the bust as a stand alone work that has a quiet presence all of it`s own. This work represents the marginalised youth of our modern day urban society. The choice of media depicts the outdated, quick fix, concrete social housing solution that is now in decay. This character has been able to rise above all this, keeping his focus on success, avoiding drugs, violence, crime & the respect he could get from street gangs. Through his own wits, charm, and watching his back, he has succeeded against all the odds; he has written his own story. Whether displayed inside or outdoors you can`t help but notice that this character has a quiet noble enduring presence.

  • 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.
