Seashell by the Bay

A "sea nymph" rises out of the water with a shell and listens serenely. The model for this portrait is a seashell lover, posing with a favorite shell. This artwork features a striking cut-away pose floating on one elbow, adding to its serene feel.

The piece shown in photos is cold-cast bronze with patina, on wood base with black finish. Available in a limited edition of 25 pieces, in bonded bronze ($525) or foundry-cast bronze ($1540) plus base ($75). For special presentations, the model is available for personal delivery of this artwork — please send details, location and desired date for a price quote.
