Forest Green Gold Bowl by Kent Le Grand

Perhaps one of the last major works of art created by the late Kent Le Grand of Western Australia originally offered to a leading gallery it is now in a private collection. This piece is in a deep forest green with an enormous amount of gold leaf applied to the under side then a trailed decoration of red and blue like toffee is added over the gold. It is mounted on a clear wave swirl base to finish off the design that shimmers like butterfly wings truly a stunning piece. This bowl is a lasting testament to a most remarkable man with only the use of one arm as it weighs more than four kilos and would have been difficult to manipulate on the end of a six foot blow pipe even with an assistant. Few artists with the use of both arms rarely tackle such large pieces as they are heavy and need constant attention while being made.
