crayon sculpture

The Dance + detail, 2006
Christian Faur
Hand Cast Encaustic Crayons
19.5 in x 19.5 in.

Faur constructs images by assorting hand-made encaustic crayons. There’s many human portraits, but I think this image of bees is the most successful since it the nautural formation of stacked crayons hints at the construction of a bee hive.
