Visionary architect and artist Paolo Soleri is well know for his experimental community Arcosanti and the cast wind bells that were created to help fund it. Far more rare are unique sculptural works by Solari. This cast aluminum sculpture has a striking architectural base and wedge-shaped slab supporting a nude female figure. Soleri's sculptures often celebrate the female form and this blocky little lady is very typical of his style. Solari used foam blocks to carve and sculpt directly. The resulting pieces were then cast in bronze or aluminum in the Cosanti foundry.
