Sculptural Matters

Standing at the gates in the Garmisch Winter Olympic stadium are four statues. As we sat and ate apfel strudel with whipped cream (we shared a piece between us) I did the outline sketch for this statue. Since being home I've finished off the sketch. The hands on this statue and the feet seemed to be enormously out of proportion - she was a woman of Amazon-like proportions but even considering that her hands and feet were HUGE!

Beautiful work Anita. I see what you mean about her arms and feet ... and the sculptor has given her footballer's legs and weight-lifters shoulders too :)

She was a really "big" woman!
