Once again, we have found a photo that was selected not only for its unique photography, but also for the subject matter. This photo was taken in 2010 by Jean-Pierre Dalbera in Oslo, NO. In an age where more metal working companies are tasked with forged crankshafts than decorative work, this purely artistic metal piece is captivating for both its creativity and materials.
By combining the whimsy of the subject matter with a structural design and industrial materials, this panel presents a multifaceted approach to craftsmanship. This metal work is the artistry of Gustav Vigeland, a Norwegian sculptor who is well known for his large body of public works. He is also recognized for creating the design for the Nobel Peace Prize medal.
