Derek Walcott, (1930 – 2017), was a poet and playwright. He was the Professor of Poetry at the University and in addition to winning the Nobel Prize, Walcott received many literary awards over the course of his career.
I created this miniature sized art figure from wood, wire, clay, paint, fiber, and fabric. Derek stands a tiny and collectible 4 1/2 " tall (11.4 cm) and wears gray wool suit jacket , dark gray pants, khaki knit vest, and dark brown shirt. Finishing details are his hand painted face, real fiber hair, and a book of his work in hand.
