Moses

This is a photograph I took of a statue of Moses in the winter time at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It was made by Leo Mol. I like the way the snow has highlighted the figure. 

Leonid Molodozhanyn or Leo Mol, as he was known, was a Ukrainian-Canadian sculptor, stained-glass artist and painter. 

According to the Assiniboine Park website, “Mol created his sculptures using the Lost Wax method. In this process, clay is modeled on a rebar and wood structure then covered in liquid rubber to form a mold. Plaster is layered over the mold, creating a cast. The cast and mold are separated from the model and melted beeswax is pressed into the rubber mold. A cement mixture is then poured inside the wax layer. After the cement hardens the molds are removed, leaving a wax model with a solid cement core.” 

Thanks in advance for liking, commenting, sharing and purchasing.
