This is one of my “Empire Peaks” mash-ups that's about 4in/10cm tall. It's an edition of my larger sculpture available here to print 3D in full-color sandstone. YoGandhi is limited to 100 editions unavailable from Shapeways after the 100th 3D print. In 2013 I hand-carved a 36” tall satirical statue of Gandhi mashed with the Jedi master in cedar wood. I had this carving 3D-scanned by a local medical device engineering firm. Since then I’ve worked to make this piece available here on Shapeways. This is an original design I fabricated and produced from from hand-carved block of wood to 3D print. As a sculptor of many pop art figures and statues over the years I’m incredibly excited to have this available today.
This character is titled “Wars Make Not One Eye Blind”. It’s a combination of quiet, modest leaders of a mass spiritual movements. These small, wise men's inspirations carried massive radical political ramifications. Big, heavy things reside in small, unsuspecting bodies. Their superpowers are more cerebral than material. Technological gadgetry is replaced by attunement to harmony and nature. A simple stick fallen from a tree is the only material object this small being needs to merely prop himself upright and maintain balance. >>>Photo credits to the generous ksailam78 for many of the wonderful images posted here.
