    3x3x7 inches. 2lbs. This piece represents the high-point of my craft to date.[written in 2012] I am extremely proud to have recreated a bust of Socrates from the cover of my Penguin edition of Xenophon's "Last Days of Socrates." I felt that my bust of Xenophon was sitting out there alone amidst a field of 20th century composers, and he needed some company from his antiquity. Had I done a search on existing busts I might never have started this one, BUT if you search for images of Socrates on the web, you will surely decide that this little fellow is probably closest to what he looked like.
