Loriot: Sculpture ‘The Optimist’, version in art casting

Loriot's ‘Character Heads’: the classics_x000D_


With an undeniable grasp Loriot keeps a sharp eye on people. Simply by describing small very natural weaknesses, Loriot’s characters are made so irresistibly likeable. In this spirit his character heads are designed. It is not a coincidence that they remind of the ‘three wise men’ and are yet typically Loriot: ‘The Experts’ who really should not talk whispers something covered with his hand. ‘The Dreamer’ acts as if he does not hear but is secretly listening with one ear. And ‘The Optimist’ holds his hand in front of his eyes but peeps through the fingers._x000D_


ars mundi offers these perfectly shaped sculptures in two high-quality versions - as a precious bronze casting and as ‘Loriot-colored’ polymeric art casting. Both series are strictly limited and can only be obtained at ars mundi._x000D_

Vicco von Bulow alias Loriot was without a doubt the "grand master" of German humour.

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.
