Sir Robert Peel bust

This large white marble bust was brutally damaged when thieves broke into the storage area of an art gallery.  The images below show the restoration process as the  ‘indented’ new pieces of marble are re-carved using photographic reference.  As a figurative carver this is the sort of challenge I relish.

  • Material Carrara marble
  • Client Oldham City Council
  • Location Oldham
  • Size 140% life size
