The widow of a close friend of mine who died recently gave me one of Fritz’s sculptures. He loved painting, carving marble and wood into strange shapes. I always wanted one of his works and out of the blue as a housewarming gift Erika gave me this sculpture. Thank you Erika πŸ™‚

  3. It was such a nice act from Erika to give one of Fritz’s sculptures to you to remember him, so I think Fritz’s hugs is the best name! It is a beautiful wooden sculpture. It was a very special present!

    • Hi LuAnn πŸ˜€ When I first saw it, it looked like a boar to me, then I came to the conclusion that I had no idea what it was. Thanks for your “Internal Workings” idea my friend. Ralph xox πŸ˜€

  6. A “strange” sculpture, in the meaning interesting, inspiring and positive way – love it – how tall is it..? πŸ™‚

    Like

    • It is a “strange” sculpture isn’t it ? All of Fritz’s sculptures and paintings are similar to this one. He just carved and let the pieces evolve into whatever.
      The height is 40cm ( 16 inches), width and depth 20cm (8 inches ).
      Thanks for your input Drake πŸ˜€ Ralph πŸ˜€

  10. Haha, the thing. That is funny. I really like the piece actually. It is well carved, and the color of the wood is beautiful. Have you ever read The Chronicals of Narnia? This sculpture looks like Mr Tumnus (or what I imagine him looking like) while doing yoga.
