It took a long time to complete this Senna sculpture. When I create a portrait bust I try to convey something of the drivers personality as well as the physical features. Senna had a very complex personality. He was intense, brooding, obsessive, exultant, and supernaturally gifted at the wheel of a racing car.
The cold cast bronze material used for the bust adds a touch of elegance and durability. It possesses a rich, metallic appearance that mimics the lustre and weight of traditional bronze.
This Ayrton Senna bronze bust is a homage to a man whose skill and charisma left an indelible mark on the world of motorsport.
