Nitten Sculpture of Rhinoceros
Tanaka Isamu - Nitten Sculpture of Rhinoceros
Okimono or sculpture in the form of a waiting rhinoceros. Of hammered, cold-chiseled and assembled iron. By Tanaka Isamu (born 1920 -). Showa 34 or 1959.
This rhinoceros pauses, an image of power resting in the sun. Tanaka hammered the sculpture from iron ingots. Rather than raise it in one piece, he chose to work in separate sections joined with repeating rivets. This focuses our attention on the material, the techniques and the artist's almost industrial aesthetic. With a paulownia wood storage box.
Vichit Nongnual - Red Princess


Vichit Nongnual - Red Princess, 2011
Vichit Nongnual is one of the younger generation of Thai artists who are gaining worldwide recognition. As a major work from his Ideal Woman series, "Red Princess" is one of his finest works from this period, from the same series as "Jade Girl" that was sold on Curator's Eye. The young woman is an ideal beauty for Vichit: traditional in so many ways, dressed like a Chinese princess, yet unmistakably Thai.
