"The Feeling of Movement. 105". The Pod by Derek bencomo Bencomo

"The Feeling of Movement. 105". The Pod

From my "Feeling of Movement", series, but only smaller. It is not uncommon for me to rework a piece once, sometimes up to 5 times. This piece start life as a large piece. Then I attempted to create a "Deconstructed" piece. Although somewhat successful, but a bit off. After a few years I was able to look at the deconstructed pieces a bit differently. 
Displayed together they form a "Deconstructed" piece. Separately each piece can stand on its own. 
Together these pieces remind me of a Pod of Whales. 

To me this piece is an abstracted impression of Maui's beloved Humpback whale.
