Modernisms and Manifestos

A bronze sculpture of an abstracted male figure in motion. His knees are bent to the right and his arms are tucked along his torso. The strong diagonal lines make him appear to be propelling in movement with great force. Juxtaposing the dark wooden base, there is light patina in the mostly bright bronze.
