Here it is where this story starts…
The General Staff Officer in the Melilla Campaign – 1893 is my first figure. I made it using the “lost wax” method. At that time I had no previous experience in modeling or casting figures, but one day I managed to get to a piece of wax for sculpture in order to try. I was pretty sure that I could get something interesting out of it. Who said “fear?”
The figure is an expression of one of the characters that can be found in the painting titled “Military camp” from the XIX century Spanish painter and officer Jose Cusachs i Cusachs. The pose of this character in the painting really captured my attention and I started the first version in June 1997 and after some changes I finally finished it in 2000.
