BENICIA, Calif.–Artist Marques Vickers recently released a new series of Feng Shui figurative torso sculptures. The limited-edition series features each of the nine color coordinates of the Bagua Map, the fundamental orientation guide of Feng Shui positioning.

The sculptural works represent each map section and are currently available through Vickers Web site at www.marquesv.com with anticipated distribution expansion through art galleries, international internet auction sites and Feng Shui sales outlets.
Each molded sculpture is individually fashioned with a mixed media composition and sealed in a Dupont IMROM 610 resin for durability and color clarity. The sculptures are designed for display in an interior environment either on a floorbased pedestal or positioned on a wall as a relief mounting.
