Me and Lucky by AlfredParedes Me and Lucky by AlfredParedes
This is a 9 foot tall monument that I'm working on for the city of Arcadia, Ca. The figure is of Elias "Lucky" Baldwin, a pretty historic and colorful character of the early west in California and Nevada. Seen here, is the finished full sized sculpt (clay over a foam output of the digitally scanned 27" clay maquette). The final piece will be in bronze and installed along the street, outside the Santa Anita Race track (which Lucky built).

very hard work - a huge sculpture. (do not you think that the feet are very large?)

Thanks. The feet are the right scale to the piece. Many people don't realize how big hands and feet actually are, and tend to draw or sculpt them undersized.
