Mara Sfara, American

Mara Sfara’s whimsical bronze sculptures convey a range of moods and attitudes, with which her audience can readily identify.  People and objects, while identifiable, are fanciful and fantastical.  Whether the sculpture portrays a mythological figure, such as an angel or mermaid, captures a specific emotion, or is simply the product of her imagination, each is a spirited character with a charming twist.
