He is also a patent holder for enlargement technique by segmentation pattern, and a member of Royal British Sculpture Society and International Sculpture Center of Washington, D.C.

You captured it perfectly with the sun shinging through. I would dearly love to see this in person. Incredible.

Hmmm… the solid part (the fingers) actually creep me out a bit. But I love the veins and mesh part and how it lets the sun shine through it.

What a beautiful sculpture and a beautiful capture. I thnk another image of this at another angle incorporating the sky would be a stunning skywatch image.
