Abstract Organic Sculpture by Fiskel

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This remarkable abstraction by Fiskel is a very evocative form that makes one think of shapes in nature such as coral. It is difficult to tell if it was created as a lost-wax casting, or an additive process, but it has an incredibly rich, visceral texture. The three pronged form is attached to a rectangular base with ball feet and is signed and dated on the base. It is powerful enough to be presented alone on a pedestal, but also scaled perfectly for display on a table or cabinet.
