Bronze sculpture details
Standing high on a matt blasted pedestal, the “Idol” fills the room with a grand and simultaneously unapproachable presence.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Günther Stimpfl studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts (Akademie der bildenden Künste) in Vienna. Since 1975 - after working as a restorer and free-standing sculptor of the Viennese palaces of Belvedere and Schoenbrunn - he has created an extensive range of sculptural works. At the same time, he drew attention to himself with etchings, pastels and drawings.
