A very impressive face - looking a bit like Rilke - but he is surely a famous British artist!
Bill Phillips: Sir Edward Elgar Philine, whose music is much admired by Mr C Phillips (no relation) of Bathshire

He looks wistful, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Forever gazing at the cathedral and remembering the 3 choirs festival
Thank you for making me discover this artist Bill. I'll try to find his music on the net and listen to it!

I like the rugged effect. he looks like a strong character Bill
Bill Phillips: I think Elgar was a fairly unassuming character
I think the subject is melting
Bill Phillips: It hasn't been that hot Mary!!
I guessed who it is but I'm not over keen on this rough style of sculpturing.
