Che Lives !

Casto Solano has sent me pictures of another statue of his - shot straight from the Spanish baroque -- updated to represent a modern saint: -- strong -- tender -- brave -- boyish....

......and with a cute little ass

I'm being irreverent, but this statue does have a real flair.
A fold of drapery is not just a fold of drapery, it participates in the compression and release of energy, i.e. Solano makes sculpture, not lifesize dolls.

He makes small sculptures, too ... and what better place to keep them than in the pockets and on the sleeves of the larger ones. O.K. -- maybe 'Che' was already cute enough -- but the tiny statues actually are very good tiny statues.
