I must be honest, despite the level of skill required to create these busts, I often find soapstone sculptures quite generic, but today’s figure is an exception – in fact I think it’s quite exceptional! Sadly there is quite a bit of damage – soapstone is very soft, which makes it ideal for carving, but also makes it very susceptible to being chipped. Obviously though once the bust is in place (you don’t really move your art around that much), it should be safe enough, and even though it’s clear that there is damage to today’s bust, I still think the beauty of the piece is the overriding feature!
