About the Artwork

Contemporary Carved Head Abstract Primitive Gargoyle Face Bust sculpture. Carving statuette for Outside Outdoors and Inside Indoors Display by Nicholas Rowsell.
“This piece by Nick is heavily detailed with tribal imagery and many other original details that defy normal descriptive platitudes. When placed centrally, so as to be appreciated from all angles, this piece becomes much more than the sum of its details as the subjectivity and superb craftsmanship combine to form a truly inspired piece of sculpture; a real original in its field with nothing being carved today coming even remotely close”.

Artist Comment

This piece took a very long time to carve, 3 years on and off, Half way into carving it, I left it for a year so, twice, other ideas could form, and set about it again. As its not large there were problems with it moving whilst I was carving it so it had to be worked in a bed of wet sand so as to stop it moving when I struck it (very frustrating). I`m very happy with the outcome of the piece. Everyone who sees it likes it and most other carvers I`ve talked to about it wish they`d carved it; and that is perhaps the best compliment going in the carving world. The nose like Viking detail has small diamonds for pupils.

  • 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.
