WORKING MAN

Its a tragedy that people who work with there hands tend to have quite a lowly status in life. This sculpture is a celebration of the nobility of working by hand. The toil and anguish associated with physical work is represented by a strong but sensitive single hand emerging from the block, giving to the world, adding to the sum total of human endeavour rather than taking, the antithesis of speculators and greedy bankers who ironically seem to hold a much higher status in life.

This sculpture was carved entirely by hand from a block of Portland stone. Portland stone is a particularly fine limestone with few fossils making it ideal for sculpture. It has been used throughout history as a building stone and sculpture material on such famous buildings as St Pauls Cathedral and Buckingham Palace.
