James Stuart Kane, Sculptor
My work is serial in nature - - a continuum of idea and form
now spanning a period of many years.

These two sculptures "Birth of a Legend" and "Birth of a Legend II," are my two most recent works in bronze. The sculptures are inspired by and based on sculptures I did forty years ago, "Horus" and "Horus of the Upper Kingdom." The sculptures were created by placing a tetrahedron within and connected to a convexly curved octahedron (which in one created a sphere and in the other an egg). In each, the sides of the tetrahedron were extended outwardly so two sides would go beyond the walls of the curved form while the other two connected the two forms. The results were flower/bird-like forms with a hint of the hawk-like Egyptian god. Looking at those two earlier works, I decided to re-visit the idea of again placing the tetrahedron within the egg-like octahedron, but making the extensions more. suggestive of wings and neck of a bird of pray. (Now only one side extends and attaches to part of the octahedron.) Of course the idea of the birth exists from the bird form breaking free of the octahedral egg.
