Stunning life-size sculpture by Los Angeles based artist, Tanya Ragir from her newest work "The Warrior" Series conceived between 2013 and 2014 after the loss of her father.
"My current body of work, The Warrior Series, centers around states of being – overcoming limitations, risk, and trust.
This is a fairly radical departure from what I have been doing for many years as an artist and is deeply personal.
I lost my father last year. It had a profound affect on me and my work. I am aware of my own mortality in a way I have never been before. I am in a different place in the arc of my life.
Leap of faith is the last piece in this series . It’s about DECIDING. It’s about taking the ultimate risk …about letting go.
Life is short.
The time is now.
What are you waiting for?"
The piece is amazing, the detail and attention to detail is truly remarkable and it shows the time and dedication Tanya took in the sculpting process of this piece.
The piece is originally done in a smaller scale which is also available for sale in an edition of 11.
We believe this is an amazing piece and we are now working on producing this piece in solid bronze, life-size and in an edition of 3.
