Spectacular Cyberman bust - the iconic nemesis of Dr Who.
".... I was incredibly fortunate to gain the trust of the BBC and was given the permission to begin sculpting a Cyberman Bust. The only caveat from the BBC was that the bust was one of the latest variants of the Cybermen as initially introduced in the episode 'A Nightmare in Silver', which made perfect sense because at this particular time they had already began the series 8 World Tour whilst I was building the armature and throwing on the clay. Even though this is a very stylised piece of work the intention was that you could still appreciate which variant it was, so I even made sure that the heavily chiselled handles still contained the correct number of grooves and slats of the superbly designed actual cyborg. I have to mention that you really do get a firm sense of how well something is designed when you are constantly observing images and certainly with the latest Cyberman Variant there are so many mathematically beautiful lines that have been so carefully balanced that when they shroud such an emotionally desolate and soulless being it becomes even more eerie in its form." - sculptor Matt Buckley
