These characters of bronze

These pieces are supposed to be three dimensional interpretations of (Chinese?) calligraphic characters. I'll up date this posting with the name of the artist and the names of the pieces (If I can describe them, appropriately, to Baggins). The sinuous nature of the pieces must have required many individual cast parts.

Update, February 16, 2008:The sculptor's name is Hou Rong, and you can see these and other pieces- here, at "The Art Collector's Quarterly".




Update, March 25 2008: Another pictograph photo scan.
