Climbers


A modern design. The idea came to me as I watched people climb artificial rock in a climbing gym; to have an artificial climber following a crack up a real rock. The tricky part is finding a piece of rock with an outcrop or crack that the "climber" can hang onto. This sulferous-colored sandstone makes an interesting cliff face for 2 figures to climb.

Airbrush, brush and sgraffito on Sandstone
This stone has “fossil” mineralization in it that I thought looked like hanging ferns.

Size approx. 15" x 6.5”
