handmade in high-fired stoneware clay
includes Certificate of Authenticity.
The Old Man of the Mountain is a high-fired sculpture. He is the second in my 'Earth People' Collection. In the early stages of sculpting him, I knew he wanted to be titled the 'Old Man of the Mountain'. This, I kept in mind as I finished him up and sculpted his finer details.
He is as old as the mountains themselves - so time moves very differently to him than it does to us. He wanders around the mountains making sure things are as they should be. Sometimes the 'Old Man of the Mountain' rescues houses before they tumble off corroding cliffs, or are sucked into sink holes.
The 'Old Man of the Mountain' is a dreamer. He dreams of reuniting with his long-lost LOVE - the 'Old Lady of the Mountain'. After the old man was made, I had to reunite him with is old lady. Although they have stood side by side, they still live worlds apart - dreaming of each other and remembering the good times they shared eons ago.
The 'Old Man of the Mountain' is a wander, a traveller, a collector and a dreamer. I trust you enjoy him just as much as I have bringing him to life.
Note: his base has been repaired with epoxy, paint and resin
