Large Organic Ceramic Floor Sculpture by Fernando Marquina

Code: 10778


H: 60cm (23.6")Di: 60cm (23.6")

Large organic floor sculpture sculpted by the South American artist Fernando Marquina looks like an armored creature from the natural world of the Jurassic period. It is characterized by the distinctive circular cone shaped upright spikes around its bulbous form. Are the spikes and spines used as a defense mechanism, or an attack? The muted browns and blues add to it flesh like appearance of this object. Fernando Marquina was born in South America and studied ceramics and fine art in Germany and made this intriguing statue in Berlin.
