Further Information

Vanitas et Volumen is a baroque hairdressers fantasy. The self absorbed Adonis is primped and preened by a multitude of fluttering hands, that attend his vanity like 'putti',(disembodied angel heads).  Finely balanced on the most insubstantial of elements, this theatrical, over lifesize bust defies many sculptural conventions.
