65 Million Years in the Making
Although we are almost exclusively dealers of vintage objects, we will make an exception for the works of a contemporary artist we feel fits wonderfully within our milieu. We are excited to offer another sculpture by the San Francisco based emerging artist BJ Las Poñas. Shown in three angles above is our latest acquisition, this beautifully patinated and striated Bronze piece (#3 of 10) measures around 9" X 9" and weighs 16lbs. To Stephen's eye, the work has a sort of prehistoric Stegosaurus feel. BJ points to the works of Noguchi, Giacometti, Miró, and Moore as inspiration. Fresh from the foundry, this is a piece that is contemporary and classic all at once.
