Bronze sculpture details
Woytek’s “Königin” (Queen) owes its great level of suspense to a perfectly depicted ambivalence. His protagonist stands aloft on stilts. She thus achieves a height that is certainly majestic; moreover, she has her eyes looking high into the sky. All the same, her posture appears unstable and here, too, the next moment is the decisive one. Only the next step will reveal whether her character is marked by royal dignity or mere pride.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
