Verso signed and dated. 140 x 99 x 2.6 cm (55.1 x 38.9 x 1 in).
• Characteristic sculpture relief in gaudy colors and with an interesting surface structure.
• The expression of the depicted oscillates between a tense and calm Der Ausdruck des Dargestellten pendelt zwischen gespannter und gelassener thoughtfulness, closeness and remoteness, sympathy and distance.
• Balkenhol uses traditional tools like gouge, carving knife and beater to form the relief heads from the wood.
• Balkenhol's works are on display at, among others, the Kunsthalle Hamburg, the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, or the Kunstmuseum Basel

"I want everything at once: sensuality, expression, but not too much of it, vibrancy, but no shallow verbiage, momentousness, but no anecdote, wit, but no groaner, self irony, but no cynicism. And most of all a fine, calm, moved figure that says all and nothing at once. I want the figure to surpas itself, to tell things about itself and others, but without making faces." (Stephan Balkenhol, quote from: Hans Werner Schmidt (editor), Stephan Balkenhol, Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig 2001, p. 2)
