Loriot: Sculpture "The Small Thinker", Version in Porcelain

ars mundi presents the famous "Thinker" by Loriot as a compound three-dimensional sculpture. "The Thinker" is the subtle answer to the famous eponymous sculpture by the French sculptor Auguste Rodin. In this form, it is a real highlight. Moreover, Loriot enriched Rodin's idea: the thinker doesn't just represent real thoughtfulness, he receives another great gift - its silent humor!

Sculpture from hard porcelain. Burnt at 1.400 ° C. Signed. Format 12 x 18.5 cm (H/W). Weight 440g.
