” Salvaged in Liberty “.
This sculpture, named “Salvaged in Liberty”, is made on commission for the Dutch company ‘AVIKO’. It is cut out of a block marble, ‘Alicante Rojo’ of 2 meters high with a weight of approximately 10.000 pounds
In the photo gallery (see above) you can see where the stone is coming from. It is in a q quarry nearby the working place of Jan-Carel. On 1 of the photos you can see which part of the mountain is going to be used for this marble sculpture for AVIKO. The ‘Alicante Rojo’ is a stone which has emerged 60 million years ago. During the sculpting of this sculpture I find many fossils and crystals from that period. Sometimes even the crystal rooms are stuffed with water out of that period of time.
