Marcus Beitelhoff: Sculpture "Sparrow Pair", copper

On the roof, on fences and walls, they carry on with their hoaxes. The cheeky sparrows are of a special effect on the roof gutters - as long as they are not made of zinc, as they are not compatible with copper and zinc. Hand-forged sculpture of pure copper. Each exemplar is an individually forged unique piece, signed by the artist. Format ca. 26 x 17 x 15 cm (W/H/D).

Copper is the oldest metal known to mankind and used in crafts - at least since 8000 B.C - a whole epoch of the Neolithic period is named after it.

This fascinating metal experienced an artistic highpoint with the copperplate engraving in the 16th century. Picasso appreciated this graphical method for its line sharpness and contributed to its revival today. Copper has firmly established itself also in the field of sculpture.

Copperplate engraving

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
