internationally for her fine interpretive sculpture, Lynn Branson
announces a limited edition of nine bronze casts of "A Brief
Encounter" Tortoise and Butterfly.
Showing Butterfly on Shoulder of Tortoise
dramatic new limited edition in bronze captures a gentle meeting
of two of nature's most loved creatures: tortoise and butterfly.
A great deal of the power of the bronze cast results from the use
of the energy of form in the red cedar burl from which it was originally
wood grain and its natural flowing characteristics are skillfully
united with the remarkable realism of the tortoise which appears
to be emerging from the wood. He seems to be pausing, in the midst
of his own struggle, to contemplate the presence of his small companion... or
is he, too, enchanted by this magical moment when the beautiful
butterfly is perched upon his shoulder?
is the quiet, meditative quality of "A Brief Encounter."
