Charles Darwin - Illuminated Visionary Thinkers

"Different finishes create amazing colors, waxes, and patinas. No paints are used in the process; I allow the metals to show their true colors. This stemmed from the fact that Einstein believed that the future of religion would be Buddhism because it was the only religion that could handle cosmology. All beings possess Buddha nature and these statues reflect my interpretation of an Illuminated Visionary Thinker." - Sean Murphy

The finish and patina on each Illuminated Visionary Thinker is unique.
