Rhino Harlequin by Bj?rn Skaarup(430 views)
Description: Limited edition, signed and numbered sculpture (Ed. 5/6). Columbine and Harlequin are two characters from the late-Renaissance commedia dell?arte and they have maintained their allure as popular motifs for painters and sculptors ever since. That loving couple?s masculine virtue and feminine grace inspired this rendition of the timid and good-hearted rhino Harlequin. Skaarup is known for his playful works that represent animals with man-made and cultural tools, and attributes that underline their particular traits. This particular piece is part of Skaarup's Carnival of the Animals and pairs with Hippotamus Ballerina.
Notes: Fabric collar and cuffs, steel base.
Dimensions: 46 x 15 x 19 in.
Artist or Maker: Bj?rn Skaarup (Danish, b. 1973)
