A Lawyer More than Adequately Attired in Fine Print
A Lawyer More than Adequately Attired in Fine Print

In a world of black and white, this attorney feels more at ease in the gray areas. He contemplates the implications of a grain of truth - which is more than enough for a lawyer to build an entire case out of. His jacket displays an adequate supply of loopholes. His tastes run toward fine print albeit . . . he has his assistant check the print for him. A stuffed (and rather moldy) owl sits straped securely to his shoulder to give him an appearance of wisdom. His watch records the billing hours not in minutes but in dollars and . . . he's billing you even as you read this!

 

Sleeper Lost In Dreams
Sleeper, Lost in Dreams

"We are, each of us, angels with only one wing. And we can only fly embracing each other." — Luciano De Crescenzo

"In dreams, it is said that wings represent a release of creative forces, that they give us the ability to understand and transcend the human condition," Christensen says of Sleeper, Lost in Dreams. "In religion, wings appear on angels, faeries, spirits and demons. In mythology, winged creatures are often messengers of the gods; they are a symbol of freedom and spirituality and a character having one wing is said to be lost in dreams."

Following in the tradition of his previous four bronze sculptures, we present Sleeper, Lost in Dreams. Meticulously crafted and superbly detailed, this sculpture is sure to grace the lives of collectors for generations to come.

 

Benediction
Benediction

"I have always used the floating fish to symbolize the presence of life's magic," says Jim Christensen. "Occasionally, I've wondered whether these little guys are bringing the magic with them or are the result of it. Who is the recipient of the benediction? Is the angel blessing the fish, or in another way, is the fish blessing the angel … blessing her by its presence? The Latin on the ring, Beatus est Pisciculus, translates as "Blessed is the Little Fish." Regardless of which came first, the angel or the fish, it's important to stop and take the time to be thankful for the magic in our lives."

 

False Magic
False Magic

In the fantastic world of James C. Christensen's paintings, fish are a symbol of magic and wisdom. "Their floating presence in the air reminds us that anything is possible," says Christensen," and those touched or surrounded by fish are considered truly blessed. When the fish don't arrive, however, sometimes a person will take matters into his own hands, with compelling but less-than-convincing results.

"When The Greenwich Workshop first approached me about transforming False Magic into a bronze sculpture I was surprised, but it turned out to be a brilliant idea. As soon as we had constructed the rigging I knew it was going to be great; the creative work and art of many people have taken False Magic and made it real magic." Meticulously crafted, superbly detailed and stunningly translated into three dimensions, this sculpture will provide real magic wherever it finds a home.
