WitchDoctor by DaveRichardsonArt WitchDoctor by DaveRichardsonArt
The WitchDoctor was my first big bronze, done in 2000-2001. I was still in high school. I only had one sculpting tool, oh , and a tooth pick. Make do with what you have, right? My father really taught me the molding process during this sculpt. My dad also did the patina on the WitchDoctor. My uncle Dave bought one and I have sold another since. I like this sculpt a lot, it seems very dream like to me. Sometimes I think about how he walks and it sends chills through me. The WitchDoctor always seem to be cleaving through the air of time and space.

Scary and awesome all rolled into one. I love how it is so unreal yet looks as if it could exist beyond nightmares.

wow, that's bigger than what I thought from the picture. But smaller than I would have assumed I guess ^^; I always expect bronzes to be massive for some reason.

I think this is one of my favorite pieces that I've seen here in your gallery so far. I love that sense of movement- very disturbing to picute as you yourself say- and I love his structure and overall design. Deffinitely a creature from out of thr Darkness!!!! Wonderful piece.
