A maquette is a sculptor's small preliminary model or sketch.
After the completion of the 'Tail of Foynes', a 1.7 scale sculpture based on the iconic Boeing 747 'Jumbo Jet', which was designed and made to commemorate the centenary year of Boeing Aviation, our client wished for Shane Holland Design Workshops to make a fleet of Marquette’s that could be given out to respective colleagues.
The Marquette’s made from aluminium and acrylic, while small in form, comprised of intricate parts that took a steady hand throughout the creation process. These Marquette’s embodies the spirit of the much larger 'Tail of Foynes' sculpture, which has been unveiled at the Flying Boat Museum. The Marquette is a simple reminder, as it sits on an office desk or a side table in a home, the wonderful achievement of Boeing over the past 100 years.
