New life-size, bonded aluminum sculpture by Emil Alzamora titled “Aegis”.
Globatron did an interview with Emil several months ago in August of 2008 here:
Note from Emil: Aegis is protection, it originates from greek mythology as a shield from harm, often a cloak/shield combined. I made this piece as a response to the BS floating around out there and how to protect myself from it. The process is resin bonded aluminum “pancakes” poured onto a rubber mold surface, i then apply them, prior to complete setup, to the armature (foam and metal) using wetter resin…it’s complicated but fun.
