John Leon Sculptures / Yardbird / Music Furniture
Bronze. Height 15 inches.
This title was Charlie Parker's nickname. The great saxophonist and jazz innovator lead a reckless life, succumbing at 34 to his own excesses. Yet his music soared far above his troubled existence, inspiring all who listen; an exaggerated example of the human spirit overcoming the human condition. I made this piece as a small idol, in a style influenced by the geometric simplifications found in Cycladic marble figures (Greek islands, 2400-2700 BC). Those sculptures somehow capture the human essence of their subject with a minimum of detail and "realism."
