My finished wood sculpture Hero. When I started this sculpture I did not have any specific plan what I am going to do. This work was part of my exhibition in Joensuu at gallery Kohina. I knew that it would but at my exhibition a couple of portraits of my daughter and sculpture Man With a Blue Pants. I wanted to continue with a human form and take elements of aging. When I was doing this piece some point in the process it started to look like that person had a cloak in his back. I liked this a lot, so I decided to leave it and give it a name Hero.
