The Gibran Sculpture Series
So we now have the main components assembled, but not yet the complete sculpture.
Here we’ll show you the final assembly.
This is the bronze sculpture, Speak to us of Freedom in the foundry. The statue has finally been placed in a standing position and the arms have been loosely, but accurately positioned. The next step is to weld the arms to the torso. The dove is lying on the workbench behind.
This is a colour close up of the torso and upper arms of Speak to us of Freedom in the foundry. Welding is complete and any excess weld metal has been removed.
This colour photo shows Speak to us of Freedom lying on her stomach on a bench in the foundry. The dove is being positioned and clamped for welding.
