Medium - Bronze
Date - 1970
Size - 5 inches (13 cms) height
Edition - It was intended that there would be an edition of 9 for each of the five variations. However, Singers Foundary, who cast the work, lost the plasters after only three had been cast. Therefore whilst works were marked as 1, 2, 3 of 9 the edition was in fact 3.
Exhibited - Marjorie Parr Gallery, London (1971).
Collections - Private
Auction details - Ed 1 of 9 Sold Ahlers and Ogletree, Atlanta, USA, 05/2016, Hammer Price $5,000.00
Notes - Within an edition Denis would often change the amount of patination on each work finished. Whilst one side of the two works illustrated is the same the reverse is quite different.
