About the sculpture:

THE INSPIRATION – The beautiful Porsche 904 was a 1960’s race car that was also built for the road, with just over 100 build for racing homologation. Also known as the Carrera GTS.

THE SCULPTURE – This sculpture accentuates Steven James’ stunning car form with a long curved wooden swept tail section, using multiple stripes of steamed and hand bent interlocking ash. A beautiful long plinth of Walnut features in this artwork. The car form is cast concrete, polished and real gold leaf covering it, with a distressed finish look.

THE LOOK – The angled rear leads to long arcing curved strips of ash. These handcrafted wooden tail elements twist and interweave, portraying an imagined aerodynamic airflow. Purchasers can choose their own bespoke custom specification of materials and finishes.
