      Back to Back is an original stone carving from Colorado Yule Marble by artist Kelly Borsheim. It is a beautiful white stone with subtle grey streaks running a soft diagonal over the male and female torsos that stand facing the world, together. This nude couple torso statue looks great in home decor, tabletop, dresser, pedestal, shelf, even an entryway in your interior design plan.

      There is a lot more to love in stone sculpture than romance. It is a beautiful thing to feel vulnerable with another, yet still strong in the knowledge of not being alone. When we leave our bellies (fronts) exposed, it is a sign of openness, confidence, and strength. And when we go Back to Back, it is for protection, since we do not have eyes in the backs of our heads to be able to see 360 degrees all around us.  As a couple, we can be stronger.

      In body language, exposing our vulnerable fronts is a show of fearlessness. But it can also simply be an openness to the world around us. Note the "open book" shape at the top of the figures. That is sharing and caring love!

This white marble artwork makes a great wedding or anniversary gift!

     Shipping from Norfolk, Virginia, Back to Back, has been sealed to protect from finger oils as you run your fingertips along to surface and anatomy. If you place the work outside, as in a small garden, you may need to clean and then treat with a marble stone sealer once per year. Indoor sculpture is naturally lower maintenance. Stone carvings are a wonderful investment for a life-time and more enjoyment.

 

     Back to Back, as with all of my artworks, can be purchased with my LawAway payment plan, no finance charge.  You set the date and the amount that you would like to pay each month.  One-third of the price [regardless of when that balance is reached] becomes the non-refundable deposit.  [However, in the event that you change your mind or situation, this deposit may be applied towards any other available Borsheim Artwork.]  PayPal makes everything easy and safe for you.  Please contact me if this one-of-a-kind marble sculpture interests you.

 

Thanks so much,

Kelly Borsheim, sculptor

 

P. S.  Fascinated by the changing mood and relationship of light falling on form, I included this image to share with you some more . . . ooh la la.

Stone Carving Back to Back Torso Contemporary Art Sculpture 

The Creation of the Stone Carving Back to Back Contemporary Art:

Check out this romantic sculpture I made in Colorado Yule marble.
Two torsos, one male and one female stand "Back to Back" in this marble figure sculpture by Kelly Borsheim. The concept is vulnerability (showing soft bellies) and support of one another, facing things together. The marble is Colorado Yule. It is a white marble with subtle grey and some golden lines in the stone. Really beautiful. The torsos are realistic, but simplified... no nipple detail, for example. The finish is soft, allowing the light to caress the bodies. #contemporarysculpture

Italiano:
Dai un'occhiata a questa scultura romantica che ho realizzato in marmo Colorado Yule.
Due torsi, uno maschile e uno femminile stanno "Back to Back" [Schiena a Schiena] in questa scultura in marmo di Kelly Borsheim. Il concetto è vulnerabilità (mostrando pance morbide) e supporto reciproco, affrontando le cose insieme. Il marmo è Colorado Yule. È un marmo bianco con un sottile grigio e alcune linee dorate nella pietra. Davvero bella. I torsi sono realistici, ma semplificati... nessun dettaglio del capezzolo, per esempio. Il finale è morbido, lasciando che la luce accarezzi i corpi. #sculturacontemporanea

Process:

     This stone was cut from the marble quarried for the artist's carving of the Gymnast (above her head):

Stone Carving Back to Back Contemporary Art Figure

     I am a direct carver. That means that I draw directly on the stone and cut what I wish to not have there. The other method is to create a sculpture in some other, more forgiving, material and then "translate it" (copy mathematically) into stone by taking measurements from the original. You may see the Gymnast as a work-in-progress (WIP) on the right in the background.

    Is it not easy to fall in love with marble? Even though the two images above were taken during the final sanding and polishing stages, her beauty is quite evident. She looks soft with the right curves in place and the little crystals (seen easier in the image on the right) are such a subtle splendor.

    The image left showing the lower part of the male torso also gives you an idea of how translucent this Colorado Yule Marble can be when thin enough. I like the contrast that gives me so much change in the light interacting with the stone. The image on the right shows "the wet look." I was having a bit of fun while I was washing off a layer of fine marble dust after sanding, preparing for the next finer level of sandpaper. This sculpture is very touchable, even after the sealer has been added for protection. Enjoy touching and looking!
