Ancient Guardian, carved in sandstone by

Title: Ancient Guardian

Material: Sandstone

Dimensions: 60cm (Height).

Weight: 60kg

Edition: 1/1

What inspired this sculpture:

I wanted to create one of my trademark heads out of sandstone quarried from the Bendigo area, which allows me to sell them much cheaper than my marble heads. I originally designed Ancient Guardian to overlook our house, but my wife didn’t want him to actually look into our house. Hence, the closed eyes.

Each head is one-of-a-kind and can be custom designed. Ancient Guardian has been designed to be mounted within stone retaining walls. However, this is just one idea where these can be mounted. i.e. Stand alone garden features, leg-ends for bench. Water feature with water coming from mouth. Could even have your bricklayer or stonemason mount it into your stone or brick house.
