Carved in Italy, only two of these heads were made, one in white marble and this pink rendition. There are only 5 marble pieces by Goodacre including the magnificent marble Bather at the Fred Jones Museum at Oklahoma University. The process used is similar to bronze, the piece is sculpted in clay, a plaster cast is made and taken to the carvers in Italy. Using an ancient geometric technique, the artisans “find” the sculpture in a block of marble, then the artist can work with the carving in the studio for fine tuning the finished work of art.
