It’s a Process… Forever Unfinished...

The Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo created slave statues in various stages of completion, and it is claimed that he deliberately left them incomplete. Michelangelo believed the sculptor was a tool of God, not creating but simply revealing the powerful figures already contained in the marble. Michelangelo’s task was only to chip away the excess, to reveal.


A failed attempt to create a 3D print of Mel inspired Marinela Carbajal Medrano to suggest I do a Mel version of Michelangelo’s slaves. To remind us that we are always chipping away, revealing a better version of ourselves, on and off the mat.


So true! - Thank you Marinela!
