CATENAX - The Mobius Strip


CATENAX, defined as a ‘Large Chain of Connected Ideas’, began its existence as the ‘Commemorative Piece’ celebrating T Barny’s 25th year of being a professional sculptor. The piece was sculpted of Italian Alabaster and it was chosen by the artist to represent the celebration of his ‘One Quarter Century of Creative Excellence’ in 2006. The piece was cast in two tabletop size editions; one of cast stone and one of bronze. These pieces measure 11 in.x 9 in.x 6 in. and are both editions of 25. During the casting of this piece the original didn’t survive the process and therefore no longer exists. The piece was scanned to the heroic size of 41 in.x 41 in.x 31 in. and mounts atop a pedestal measuring 36”H x 24” diameter. CATENAX is cast in bronze with a jade patina in an edition of 25 that was just released in 2008.

“My forty year fascination with the mobius; the simple original strip introduced to me in the third grade, has led me to what I continue to carve out of stone today” explains the artist. A T Barny mobius still has one side and one edge but is three-dimensional and travels through itself on continuous intertwined loops.

“This is my expression of non-duality; my statement of oneness, creating an interrelated continuousness. We are all connected: to each other, to the earth and to the universe around us” states T Barny.

One night you look at the full moon in the sky while being chased by were wolves and wished your replica watches had a moon phase complication or was at least spiky and made of silver. It is very expensive but maybe it is a really well finished movement. Maybe, you never know. The case on the watches store moon phase is quite masculine with the coin replica watches sale bezel and the simple curved lugs, while the hands are quite feminine and fit the overall aesthetic. Great to see a pointer date, so glad they did not decide to introduce a cyclops to this rolex replica uk too. However the moon phase just tries too hard to be different from everybody else. It does succeed to be different, but in a rather frustrating way. Most people these days want value and many of us are really care about the metal out replica watches is encased in, as long as its scratch resistant and looks good I could care less. I love that rolex replica has decided to get into the game of taking on brands like others with dressy men complicated watches.
