Knight

Sculpture

This is a not typical theme for my works. The idea was suggested by a glass holder from soviet times, that I purchased in a shop of antiques. The shape of the holder reminded me of a knight’s armour, because the holder was decorated with typical decorations and specific ornaments. I just had to find some waste, that would serve as the arms, legs, head and weapon. The weapon, made of earrings, is especially interesting. A peculiar coincidence – there already was an inscription “Not war make love” engraved on them. This really suited the chosen topic. I decided to choose unpainted parts for my sculpture. For me it was important, because I wanted to emphasise the shiny image of a knight. His helmet I decorated with feathers, which were made of springs from old watches.

The main details:

  • The Armor – a glass holder.
  • The Head – a metal goblet.
  • The Feathers – springs from old watches.
  • The Legs – candlesticks.
  • The Weapon – an earing.
  • Oval sole – a picture frame.
