Bronze. 12 inches length. Tall 16 inches tall.
I was commissioned to sculpt this emblem in Madrid in February 2009. This is a motif quite different from the figures I had sculpted so far, however it let me revert to motifs that I really like, as leaves and trees, since a big part of the emblem is represented by oak tree leaves.
The oak tree leaves are often present in Spanish military iconography due to its symbolism. Among others, they can be also found in the emblem of the Spanish special forces units. In this case I worked with plastiline for sculptor. For this kind of work, the outcome with this material is fantastic.
