Bruce Cook says about these sculptures: "I set out to do a series of small bronze sculptures that would invoke the beauty of a woman’s body. At the same time I wanted to create a pragmatic element to the figures in the sculpture. Here I present to you “Nala" one woman in a series of sculptures titled “Working Girls.”
The female form is the focus in my sculptures. The premise for the sculptures is that a task should be performed by each sculpture.
I hope that you will notice that each sculpture stands on it’s own. Each form functions as either a bookend or a pen holder. In Nala’s case she performs as a bookend."
Nala’s unusual hairstyle is an interpretation of the hairstyle on a piece of African sculpture that I have. Her name was inspired by one of the characters in the story.
Please note that there are 2 patinas to choose from, "Herculaneum Black". and golden. Please write a note as to which you prefer. Thank you kindly.
