Strong-Man


 

This humorous piece was constructed out of cardboard boxes that were cast into bronze, creating a unique texture and look.

Cardboard, instead of clay, was the base material for the Strong-Man. When the shell material that coated the cardboard was fired, the cardboard was incinerated, resulting in a cavity that was filled with molten bronze.

Based upon old photos of weight lifters from the turn of 19th century Strong-Man easily lifts his weight of empty bronze boxes over his head.
