Elemental Elegance

BB.gifWe're Bond & Bowery, a website with the most diverse selection of antiques, design, and fine art in cyberspace. We highlight quality pieces without the clutter of competing ads and excessive editorial content. B & B understands the importance of a valuable acquisition and its contribution to home decoration.

Your B & B Host: I'm George Evans, and I've spent the last 20 years importing and exporting antiques and fine design pieces from Europe. I'm a New York City dealer and I have two showrooms in Lambertville, New Jersey.


This week we're bringing you Wind, a 2003 bronze sculpture measuring 27 inches high from American artist Anita Huffington. This is signed piece number 4 in a limited edition of 9 castings and is represented by our dealer friends at River Stone, 37 West Broad Street, Haverstraw, New York.

The rural Arkansas studio of Ms. Huffington is an unlikely place to create such classical beauty, yet she has managed to capture the Greek and Roman ideals of elemental beauty. You can place this sculpture on a tabletop surface or on a display stand, as Noel Jeffrey and The Jeffrey Design Group did in the study they did for the 2007 Kips Bay Decorator Show House (see photo below). Mr. Jeffrey said that this sculpture by Franz Von Stuck is one of his favorite room elements: "I think it's strong and adds majesty to the room."


We think Wind would add beauty and majesty to your home, too.

For a more in-depth discussion about this bronze, see my By George! interview with Design2Share. And visit Bond & Bowery for the item detail page on this wonderful Anita Huffington creation.
