This wonderful sculpture, Tempesta, is one of a group carved with consummate skill by Emily Young from multi-patterned and textured clastic igneous rock. I am unable to find the source of the stone. It is displayed, courtesy of Bowman Sculpture, at Neo Bankside behind the Tate Modern Gallery in London, England. The rock is amazing in its complexity and the work has taken advantage of the challenging medium by exploiting both its natural beauty and its flaws.

Very striking – is it as large as it looks Jessica? Must make a huge impression on the viewer.
These stone heads were amazing. Bigger than life size but not huge – that effect is from the close-up perspective. The thumbnail by the text gives a better idea of scale with the plinth being perhaps about a metre high in this particular one.
