The last rare artist's proof IV/IV which takes up the timeless theme of mother and child. I could talk about African maternity. In my iconography, the giraffe is a woman, the rhinoceros a man. Here a tender look is exchanged between the mother giraffe and her rhinoceros son !
Brown patina, lighter background, slight colour of the savannah.
This is a sculpture from 1998. It is in my studio and is the only remaining edition. The first edition of this sculpture was inspired by the play « Rhinoceros » by Ionesco before being acquired at the time by the writer’s doctor.
