Bertil Vallien Kosta Boda Sculpture that could be Carelessly Overlooked
Excellent Bertil Vallien Viewpoints Block Sculpture. With a fleeting look this wonderful piece could so easily be overlooked underestimated or misunderstood if just glanced at and simply passed by with no true attention, not allowing just a few moments spent engaging with it. Don't miss the opportunity to just take a look. Also this magnificent glass sculpture that was very hard to photograph to do it true justice. So, at a glance it could be written off as extremely masculine perhaps even a macho iron age piece simply depicting a male warrior or a hunter, if this is what you want that's just fine. However having lived with this sculpture for years, I have experienced the wonderfully positive detailed shades of blue in the figure holding a spear as both male and female or sometimes one or the other, the protector of a doorway at the top of a stairway to something precious or spiritual beyond, or perhaps the provider of essential needs both physical and spiritual. As with all of Bertil Valliens sculptures he opens up a space for our imagination to be free to explore and experience meaning in glass that reflects and refracts from different viewpoints and in the ever changing light.
As you may have picked up this is a reluctant but essential sale. This mythological sculpture was sand casted back in the mid 1990s with clear glass that was then sandblasted to achieve a matte outside surface creating a lighted space inside. In my opinion it is a brilliant piece from this leading World renowned Swedish glass artist.
