About the sculpture:

THE INSPIRATION – The legendary Porsche 911 RSR was nicknamed the ‘Mary Stuart’ for its large wrap-around rear tail. It won the 1973 Targa Florio, the great Sicilian road race.

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. Carbon fibre streaks represent the rear tyre marks, and a thick oak plinth feature in this artwork. The car form is cast concrete, polished and real gold leaf covering it, with a distressed finish look.

THE LOOK – The rear spoiler leads to a huge arcing curved section of ash. Other handcrafted wooden tail elements twist and interweave, portraying an imagined aerodynamic airflow. Purchasers can choose their own bespoke custom specification of materials and finishes.
