This is an artwork mural depicting the famous Pocahontas Princess – who was captured by the Brits in 1613, who then elected to stay rather than return to her native Virginia.
A F Jones helped the artist to take a concept into reality: how the panel could be carved & patterned; how the feather geometry could be best produced; how the feathers could be fixed into the wall; digitization of the main panel design, etc.
The material used is Portland Stone (Basebed).
The feathers are all hand carved from block.
The main panel used a mixture of CNC routering, with hand finishing.
