Centaur Rooster


This piece is in a private collection. It is the first Centaur Chicken- Gallus Porter or Cock Man, as it’s owner refers to it.I created this piece after a long period of plaster trial and error in the fall of 06. I finally reached a predicable/stable result with the straight figure.  Shifting this technique to the demands of the centaur chicken was a big test/risk of the plaster technique, as the torso creates an enormous cantilever of stress on the legs. I didn’t think it would work, and so was happily surprised with its structural integrity.
