Loriot: Sculptures "The Three Character Heads", version in art casting

Loriot´s "Character Heads": The classic

With unerring feeling, Loriot is looking at people. It is just the display of minor, wholly natural weaknesses that make Loriot´s characters so irresistibly likeable. His characters are created exactly along these lines. Not without reason, they remind us about the “three wise men", however, they are typical Loriot: "the Connoisseur", who actually should not speak, is whispering under his hands. "The Dreamer" acts as if he does not hear anything, however he is eavesdropping with one ear. And "the Optimist" keeps indeed his hands over his eyes, but he is peeping from under his fingers.

ars mundi presents you these perfectly shaped sculptures in two high-quality versions – as precious bronze casting and as "Loriot-colored" polymer casting. Both series are strictly limited and available only at ars mundi.

The complete trio as set with set with preferred and unitary serial numbering.

Loriot - who does not know him? Under Loriots hands almost everything is turned into gold: He is responsible for two Golden cameras, two gold records, the Golden Screen, the Golden Gramophone and the Honorary Golden Lion. Not to mention the Ernst-Lubitsch- and Adolph Grimme Prize, the Telestar or special Bambi ... for his outstanding service he was awarded Federal Cross of Merit. Loriot - who does not know: The Men Muller-Ludenscheid and Dr. Klöbner who - unwittingly fall into the same hotel bath - so delightful argue about whether the duck now allowed to water or not ... In his books, has become the creator of the nose males, Vicco von Bulow, aka Loriot, dealt extensively with the passage of time. Just think about "Loriot's diary - current affairs by a master hand" or "Loriot Heile Welt - New collected texts and drawings to burning questions of our time".

Vicco von Bulow alias Loriot was without a doubt the "grand master" of German humour. His sketches are frequently knows every word by heart (the English "by heart" it hits better ...), and on which field he has always moved - as a cartoonist, as a humourist, as an actor and director - he's always special, memorable done.

If one asks what the reason of this success, so it is nearing on the quote of Vicco by Bulow: "comic, as I understand it, has to do with self-irony, otherwise something is missing. You must involve yourself. "That's in all his works noticeably, and because this is so, his wit is never belittling, hurtful never - at the end Loriot went even very affectionate with the figures of his aptly parodies and accurately observed unmasking of petty-bourgeois narrow-mindedness to. humour, so we could formulate is a sharp dagger for fierce clashes, but a fine scalpel, which ultimately works to the healing of the world with each cut with Loriot. The "grand master" of German humour died in August 2011

Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Graphic or sculpture edition that was initiated by ars mundi and is available only at ars mundi or at distribution partner licensed by ars mundi.

Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

Cast stone
Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

Cold cast bronze
Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

ARA wooden copy
In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

Ceramic casting
As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

Bronze casting
In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.
