This is a pastel portrait of the Australian sculptor Hans Nielsen, well known for his beautiful and sometimes lyrical or even downright funny creations. Hans is recognized for his sensuous abstract sculptures in stone, as well as for his welded steel works.
This photo was taken in 1984 with one of Hans Nielsen’s sculptures commissioned for the Forest View Memorial Park in Whiterock Cairns.
This is an example of Hans Nielsen’s stone sculpture, equal to anything in the world for abstract stone sculpture.
Here is a beautiful example of his work in wood.
