If you like an instrument that sings, play the saxophone. At its best it’s like the human voice.
This hand carved wooden saxophone clearly shows one of the strong influences in this persons life and like the 21st key hopefully will be one of the things that helps them to open new doors. It was great to have such a clear vision for this sculpture and I always enjoy when families approach me with ideas like this.
This birthday sculpture opens up the door to a raft of other musically orientated carvings like the guitar, harmonica, though a drum kit would be a bit more of a challenge.
