Set of 2 ceramic figurines "Sea Lions"

They come from Uruguay and belong to the most beautiful examples of parochial folk art - sea animals, which show the colours of the sea: the black of the deep, the blue of the water surface, the white of the wave foam and the splendor of the sunset.

The effort, which is operated for these colourful ceramics is enormous. In a first step, the cast, still soft basic shape is provided with fine jewellery details. A first fire hardens them, then they will - again by hand - painted and covered with decorative enamel glazes. Finally, after further rounds of stove, gilding and platinum elements are applied- so create individual certificates of close association of Latin American popular art craft at the highest level. Each piece is unique.

Sea lions are very social animals who return again and again to their birth colony. Artistically, their life on the basis of the small fish is shown - between foraging and breaks in the sun here. Enamel glaze with 18-carat gold-plating. Sea lion: Size 9 x 11 x 7 cm (B/H/T). Baby sea lion: Size 7 x 9 x 6 cm (B/H/T).

Both sea lions in on set.
