Boy with Calf
A poetic and dynamic work of a boy leaning over a calf. On the other side of the stone he pulls a blanket up to his face, perhaps in remorse for the past. Rae does not plan his sculptures – he just carves what is within each stone. He says it is a mystery.
Carved in Creetown silver-grey granite which is 391 million years old.
