Dimension: Ht 43” W 16” D 8” I did this sculpture in 2007 out of narra ( Amboyna) burl. I had the burl lying around in my studio for around 4 years before the image of the pregnant lady revealed itself to me out of the thin undulating crusts of burl. It was quite a challenge as a sculptural project. Full control on the material was taken away by the sheer thickness of the wood and its hardness. The sculpture took 1-1/2 months to finish.
