‘Bread’ - Derek A Fitzsimons

Medium: Granite

This is a very unusual sculpture by Fitzsimons. Usually one would expect to see sculptures of animals or human figures or even abstract works, but foodstuffs, such as bread, are usually seen in still life paintings rather than sculpture. This sculpture is made of granite, a particularly hard stone which is very hard to sculpt but very durable, because of its durability it is often used for outdoor sculptures.
