Hagar

Esther Melamed, Hagar, 2005. African Serpentine stone, private collection.

Melamed works and teaches in Cambridge England and exhibits in London and Cambridge. She is inspired by the human form and primarily produces figurative carvings that contrast the polished human form with the roughhewn stone. In this piece she is focusing on the stoicism needed to overcome personal tragedy.
