This rather existential bust is entitled "Jean Paul Sartre in his Paris Office." He was well-known to have done his work in a cafe on the boulevard. It was, for me, rather a bit of a "breaking out" stylistically, and of course, it is fun. The pipe, by the way, comes out, and will be removed for shipping. This version is coffee-stained in the coffee-cup for verasimilitruthatude.
When you get this cast on your bookcase it will be quite clear it was hand-made and nearly one-of-a-kind. It has rough corners and small imperfections everywhere...if it were being readied for a final manufacturing cast it would take about 20 hours more careful work. Since coming from my own 2-part mold, it already has half that much. SO---I MAKE YOU A BIG DEAL!!! If you order this Sartre for yourself or as a gift, make sure to tell me whose book-case it shall be on, and I will engrave a special dedication on the base (the bottom or the back) for you. THAT is a big deal....as this alone takes me another hour.
