Origins: The Golden Mean

by Kelsey Zalimeni

In light of the upcoming NetApp unveiling event, this post highlights the piece which preceded and inspired 'Double Diver.'  'The Golden Mean,' a single bronze diver with goldleaf detail, is in fact the sculpture that started it all- balanced and stalwart, it stood as a beacon of human ambition and artistic accomplishment.

The attention to detail and anatomical correctness of this piece is astounding.  The polished bronze finish calls attention to every dip and curve of the figure's composition.  A testament to Carole's skill and vision, 'The Golden Mean' provides not only a pleasing view, but a starting point from which to trace her progression toward new innovations in 'Double Diver.'
