The Runner

this sculpture is 'work in progress '. The clay modeling of the primary two figures is almost complete .
Originating with the image of a marathon runner being carried comatose from the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2001 Our protagonist represents all that is the essence of that race , The greyhound that will be placed low behind her speaks to the contest of speed and the two figures will be joined by her hair that that braids and becomes the swirling finishing tape around their feet.
This piece will be produced as a limited edition in bronze. In my Dream it would ultimately sit on a pedestal larger than life size beside the finish of the Boston Marathon- We dream of sponsors and the goodwill of the City Administration.
The assemblage will be about 32" long and 26" high and 10" wide.
