Martin Eichinger (1949- )
Martin Eichinger is best known for his bronze narrative sculptures. With over twenty years of sculpting experience, Eichinger’s work is represented in over two-dozen fine art galleries across the country. He is a resident of Portland, Oregon and an influential figure in the Northwestern sculpting community, as well as a founding member of the Pacific Northwest Sculpture Association.
Targo and the Butterflies is the tenth sculpture in the Circus Series. It is also accompanied with a poem by Eichinger.
I’ll bend an iron bar or knock down a horse.
I do an elephant’s job and carry babes for the raves.
Don’t ask me ‘bout Einstein or Feinstein or if my moon is rising.
Just gi’me real man work, a couple steaks, a loaf of bread,
And I’ll lift your pretty babes until I’m blue in the head.
