Flightless Tondo by Sandy Scott
Wildlife wall mounted sculpture

The Italian word rontondo (round) coined the term tondo and was used during the
Renaissance for religious and mythological imagery. The circular shape has
challenged sculptors and painters since Greek antiquity.
I have been influenced by classical sculpture since my student years
at the Kansas City Art Institute and the time-honored tondo seemed
like the perfect format for my new creation – “Flightless Tondo”.
The inspiration for the bas relief was provoked by the discovery of
a dead bird in snow under my studio window.
