Much like ‘Lady of the Sea I’, this sculpture by Arturas depicts a female actually forming a part of and merging with a sea shell. Apart from being really interesting to look at, from the detail on the shell to the colours used in the patination, this piece is also really tactile and in fact you find yourself regularly drawn to touching it.
In this piece, the Lady of the Sea II, is somewhat despairing, as she holds her hands to her head and gazes at the sky above – worried perhaps about the rate of Climate Change? With the added lovely detail of her long plaited hair falling behind her, this is another truly engaging artwork by the Lithuanian born but Irish resident artist, Arturas Karabanovas. Be sure to go through all the accompanying imagery here to get a real sense of this beautiful sculpture.
