Lost at Sea

Wooden Sculpture

(ID: A59905)
Created by Dona Dalton
This piece originated at a time of political pessimism, when and where it was difficult to see a bright spot. Being lost could only generate finding one's own direction.

A poem is painted on the underside of the fish. Dalton borrowed a portion from D. Leveratov's poem " River"
".... I must brim my own banks, persist, vanish at last in greater flood, yet still within it follow my task, dreaming towards the calling sea."

This sculpture is made without a template, so there will be slight variations in contour and size. The fish is laminated white pine, and is carved and shaped on the band saw and sander. The figures are carved from poplar, and may vary slightly in composition. Latex enamel is layered and burnished, creating a rich lustrous surface.

Comments about Lost at Sea:

I loved the idea however, the people on top of this beautiful piece were off center and looked as if they would topple over. I am a little disappointed,because I bought this in memory of my deceased husband.
