Bronze sculpture details
A motif that reaches far back into early times: the deification of the steer is one of the characteristics of early herding societies and thus of archaic civilization in general.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
In his professional life, Heinz Rupp was one thing above all: a master of the small form. After completing his training as a steel engraver, goldsmith and studying at the ‘Art and Craft School’ in Pforzheim, Rupp worked as a jewelery designer for over three decades. In 1997, Rupp set himself even “bigger“ challenges by becoming active as a sculptor and painter. It soon showed that Rupp could also achieve great things in this segment of work.
