Bronze 16.5″ High – Series of 9. Tony’s thoughts: “The Struggle” was one of my earlier pieces. Once I had sort-of developed a technique and was pleased with “Alter Ego” I wanted to explore working on a larger piece with multiple figures. It was more complex using several pieces of wood attached together. At this point I began using the cone shaped element for the bottom of the pieces. I was also interested in the small heads and started to incorporate them into this series of figures. Around this time, I decided to try and create 20 or so sculptures using the style I had developed.
