Gorgeous George is off to America, not expecting any letters....

Made Gorgeous George a few years ago, and he's been one of my figures I have liked the most - the pedestal was around, but wanted something there which nodded at a Classical Greek statue but still didn't conform to that ideal. Like a handsome greek model taking a break from sitting in a heroic pose, and just wanted to relax. He was complete in my mind before I made him from one piece of clay, and I was attempting that looseness of form that comes with not trying to sculpt too detailed. 

He is now off to America, and I will miss him, because he was a relaxed little happy man, and because despite his lumpiness he always had great balance. You know...what more could anyone ask for?
