Michael Binkley carved this abstracted female torso sculpture from laguna rosso marble and mounted on black granite. Laguna rosso marble is quarried in Turkey and is a deep burgundy red colour with tiny flecks of white. Binkley polished the marble to a high sheen to accentuate the colours of the stone. The absolute black granite is from India.
This is another of Binkley’s female torso sculptures that appear to be wearing a tight evening dress. This allows him to carve the female form, but the figure is not nude. The resulting sculpture has all the attributes of the graceful female form, but appeals to the more conservative collector.I would like more information about this sculpture
