Detailed description

Sculpture "Sophia" (2022), bronze version

Thomas Jastram considers himself a classical sculptor. His sculptural work includes life-size works - among them many for public spaces such as an imposing Neptune Fountain in Warnemünde, which was erected in 2022 - portrait busts and, last but not least small sculptures such as his "Sophia".

The title of his owl sculpture refers to the wisdom attributed to the night bird as the companion of Athena/Minerva since antiquity. Therefore, the owl is a symbol of philosophy. Jastram presents it with its wings spread wide - ready for take-off.

Sculpture in fine bronze, cast using the Lost-Wax-Process, chiselled by hand, polished and patinated. Limited edition of 49 copies, numbered, signed and bearing the foundry and ars mundi hallmarks. With a numbered certificate of authenticity and limitation. Size approx. 23 x 36 x 15.5 cm (h/w/d). Weight approx. 3.3 kg. ars mundi Exclusive Edition.

About Thomas Jastram

Whether portraits, nudes or horses – the German sculptor Thomas Jastram knows how to emphasise the characteristic features of his motifs in his stone, plaster and bronze sculptures. "He always strives to express the resemblance and the charisma of the model in the clay," says his former professor, Helmut Heinze, about him.

Jastram, born in Rostock in 1959, graduated from the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts in 1985, since then he has worked as a freelance artist and had several teaching jobs, including at the Hamburg Technical School of Art.

In addition to various exhibitions, he has created numerous works for public spaces, e.g. a fountain in Ribnitz-Damgarten or the memorial for the victims of Nazi justice in Torgau, Saxony.
