Cyclist from 1900
“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.” Sherlock Holmes author, Arthur Conan Doyle, Scientific American, 1896
These words of Sherlock Holmes were a kind of inspiration of making this sculpture. This is a small sculpture, which presents a young lady form early 1900th, who is fond of bicycle riding and ready to start her ride any minute… The sculpture is done in the Powertex technique with use of textile, wood, gypsum, aluminum folia and painting tape. Powertex is a textile hardener which allows you to create solid, weatherproof sculptures from fabric.
