Tony Curley is internationally recognized for his bird carvings. Swans are one of Tony Curley's favorite subjects.
This swimming swan is a beautiful example of Curley's style. The bird is long and lean. Tony has the ability to understand the salient features of the bird and translate them into stone.
The angle between the beak and the water and the configuration of the neck and head as the bird reaches into the water are dramatic.
I see Tony as a choreographer who guides the swan through the dance.
The result is serenity, elegance and sophistication.
The dark green, black and white stone is categorically the right stone for this bird.
The more you watch this piece, the more you feel its slow movement as it gently paddles through the water.
It is a testament to the artist when you feel and see movement in the carving.
Tony Curley is renowned for his graceful and peaceful bird sculptures.
A majestic addition to your art collection or a lovely gift to a special person
