This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic. A monumental piece to exalt... the female form, the woman in this sculpture throws her arms in the air and her head backwards relishing in an invisible breeze. Her image is sculpted in oxidized and brushed bronze by Emne Al-Haje, and set on a granite base. Product Features: Color: Bronze Materials: Bronze on granite base Dimensions: 7.1 inches high x 8.3 inches wide x 2.8 inches deep Story Behind the Art: Emne Al-Haje has had an intense relationship with art throughout her life. 'I studied architecture, I designed picture frames, lamps, ashtrays, household items, and others which reflect my aesthetic values, until I eventually reached sculpture. In my sculptures, I recognize the aesthetic influence of architecture in its concern with form and trying to simplify, and approximate the line. The sense of movement which most greatly impacts my pieces comes from ballet, which I practiced for many years.' What is Worldstock?
