Abstracted large scale female nude figure in steel, reclining on a bench.

Birksted is a young Canadian sculptor. His large scale works have been accepted every year for the past three years into Oeno's annual sculpture garden exhibition.

His apprenticeship with sculptor Shayne Dark has taught him consummate professionalism in his technique and craftsmanship, but the vision is absolutely his own.

The figure is constructed of rusting steel; the steel bench is painted light grey.
