The Collector of Rare Breed Hens and His Wife (POA)

A porcelain relief sculpture attached to a smooth black mount with a satin finish. The mount has a fixture on the back for the purposes of hanging. The overall dimensions including the mount: 34 X 48 centimetres.  POA



This is a relief which reflects my interest in collectors and their respective hobbies. The impulse to sculpt this collector wearing an egg on his head was exceptionally strong.  This was partly influenced by a memory from many years before when I saw a stamp (German?) which depicted a man with an egg on his head. I thought it extremely odd and funny at the same time.
