'Free' by Emma Marie

'Free" by Emma Marie is a wooden sculpture of an African slave. The element of texture and shape dominate the work. The shape of the sculpture is less linear and more round and organic. The texture is glossy from the finish put on the wood after it was sculpted. It expresses a melancholic mood and an almost sad emotion. Any story it could express is up to who looks at it. This was an overall successful piece because it expresses a lot of emotion, mood, and it is made nicely.
