Carrara Marble about one metre square. I saw this raw piece of marble in a stockyard in Carrara. It was of such fine quality I just had to have it.
I thought I must keep for something special, it sat in my yard for nearly a year. Then the arrival of my baby daughter was an injection of blissful magic into my life. One evening sat with her holding her tiny little hand in mine suddenly thought-thats it-the special sculpture! My camera was to hand to I snapped the scene, to remind me of that moment.
Weeks of fine scraping and refining were needed to make this carving. All the power and strength of this huge hand carefully holding a tiny delicate little hand.
A moment marked; I guess I am going to spend the rest of my life looking after my little girl.
Now owned by a private collector.
