Michael Binkley has carved an original fine art stone sculpture of a stylized female nude figure. The sculpture is carved from bardiglio marble which is quarried at Carrara, Italy. The feathery black striations in the charcoal grey background are characteristic colours of this marble. “Booty” stands on a highly polished black granite base and is permanently secured with a hidden metal pin. The surface of the figure is a matte finish, giving the marble the ability to hold shadow.
The female is standing on her tip toes and demurely looks over her left shoulder with her hands clasped over her nether region. Her prominent buttocks are pushed out, and give the sculpture its cheeky title.
