Mixed media: Case hardened hammer head, welded metal horns, brass ring, cast cement balls and tassel
30 x 36 x 23 cm
A prize bull constructed from a case hardened hammer head surmounted by horns derived from a garden hoe; a nose ring and two coloured cement balls for the body. The Arcimboldo effect; the potential in objects to appear to transform or trans-mutate has always fascinated me as it has done with countless artists through the ages. This process was extensively exploited by the Surrealist Salvador Dali as well as Picasso.
