Jean’s sculptures

I had the chance to help a friend move his sculptures around a couple of weeks ago. I thought I would share this with you because they are special: the friend and the sculptures.  Jean Seidenberg made them. Jim McGee and I helped move them into place. It was a great experience. Jean cast these in bronze but they are I am sure, worth every bit, their weight in gold. Precious items of artistic achivement they are. check them out.

I believe he said this was called ‘the encounter’. Two female figures. Jean told us that each piece is three separate pieces welded together with bronze to make one. about five feet tall

I think Jean had already had this one on the landing. He put the other up top, on the upper deck.

assorted parts and pieces, Jean directed us as we arranged a bunch and placed the others on a strip of existing concrete.

We leveled up ‘the Guillotine’. Its about five or six feet tall.

‘The Guillotine’, signed by Jean in 1969. I believe the “1/3” represents one third scale and he said that’s his thumbprint to the right of the “1/3”
