“Shoonufu Female Figure,” by Willie Cole is actually made from bronze with a unique patina. The artists’ appreciation for high heeled shoes has taken him beyond using shoes themselves, and into crafting his own shoe sculptures so he has better control over the finished appearance of the piece, providing it with expression. It’s a beautiful Ebu-Arts piece that really takes the material used to the next level, showing the artist’s skill in creating these shoes not only from scratch, but making bronze look convincingly like painted leather.
