Road Angel

This piece was the reason I was at the sculpture park in the first place. It’s by the modern Renaissance man Terry Allen and is a bronze cast of a 1953 Chevrolet coupe and gives every appearance of having just careened off a narrow West Texas road into the woods of Austin.

And the headlights are on.

  1. Superb image with so much detail in the shadow areas. Suggestive of a shark’s mouth?

    • Thanks, Andy. The dappled light made it a little bit of a challenge to shoot. Also, I had to shoot between busloads of bored school kids.

      The grille does look like a shark’s mouth, or something equally menacing.
