About the Artwork

Contemporary Post Modern Mother and Child Semi Abstract Figurative Sculptures, for sale or Abstract Figurative Infant and Parent Bust Statuette, by the highly imaginative and Original Sculptress Beatrice Hoffman.

Artist Comment

The (first and main) image shows the Bronze cast - the price is for the bronze resin cast (not pictured!) Based on the archetype of Mother and Child recurrent in all cultures - Mary and the Child Jesus, Isis and Osiris - an image of protection and symbiosis: they complement each other, as each is missing one half of their face. Her hair/eyebrown line become the common bond that holds them together - Her inclined head expresses care, his lying position trust and rest - the concave space behind him an enlosed cave and place of safe This sculpture also incorporates tinges of the adult man/woman relationship - depending on one`s angle of perception. The woman nurtures and protects the man as the son he has once been ? and for that, he worships her, raises her to become a saint - the Madonna of Christian history. Saturday, 29 August 2009.

  • 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.
