Bound Torso

Matti Kalevi Auvinen

About The Bound Torso

The artist's website is www.mattauvinen.com

Notice how this white marble has been convincingly carved to resemble a soft material bound by gold colored rope. Breasts are typically characterized as soft and these are the antithesis of fleshy as they are inset cast bronze!

This sculptor authored the book Archetypes and Artifice:  Marble Reliefs, 1994-2000.
