Sculpted from white Carrara marble, this charming table top sculpture of a goat is by Doug Robinson. In Italian ‘Capra’ means a female or nanny goat—a common sight in the countryside where Robinson has lived since the 1970’s. As a young man, the Canadian artist decided to hone his craft close to the mountains where this beautiful stone is mined and Italian artists have been creating classic sculptures for thousands of years.
Of stone sculpting…”There was just a natural feeling. Almost immediately. I didn’t even think about it.” Doug Robinson
Doug Robinson studied sculpture at the Ontario College of Art and Design, the University of Guelph and in Italy. His work—sculptures in limestone, travertine and marble have been exhibited in France, Germany, London, Montreal and Prince Edward County, Ontario.
