The Human Condition

This piece was done in response in to “The Stand” a piece not represented in this site, because it sold long ago. I wanted a piece to represent relationships (the heart)

This heart represents us all, The surface lines are like the bars in song, we all have a unique melody, but we are broken with blackness inside. The red “drop” is made of Goncol Alves, sometimes called blood wood, and represents that saving grace of Christ. The main body is Mahogany, the inner core is Ebony, the base is redwood burl veneer and basswood.
