Above sculpture by Rieke van der Stoep – ” Crosswind “
I noticed while sourcing images for my post ” Figurines Of Intrigue ” that the figurines of the female form were in predominance, so I decided to dedicate a post purely on this theme. Most of the female ceramic figurines seem to be created by women whereas the sculptural female art forms have a more equal representation between male and female artists. On display are female art figures that capture a timeless elegance and compelling level of feminine mystique.

Kurtis Bell – ‘Abigail, Abby’s Angel ‘
Kurtis Bell never intended to be a sculptor. He was painting and wanted to come up with some way to have a model pose for him without the cost of a model, which he could not afford. His idea was to quickly sculpt the image he wanted to paint so he would have the subject and pose he wanted for a reference. Then he could reclaim the clay and start over.
He found he was better at sculpting than painting and now mainly does sculpting.
This bronze sculpture of an angel bathing by a stream was created for his recently departed dog Abby.

Rieke van der Stoep – ‘So much on my mind ‘ – outdoor bronze statue
The woman and the circular shape, symbolizing infinity and movement, are recurring themes associated with her own intuitive power and perception of the female. – Rieke van der Stoep
