Dimensions:
H 120 cm W 200 cm D 100 cm

An impressive 3D old master painting inspired on Rubens fighting tigers and lions painting. A Siberian tiger ripped open a Victorian cage with marble crown. A pair of Wreathed Hornbills flew for their lives but only one got lucky. The other one is crushed under the giant claw of the beast. Instead of being satisfied by the meal this tiger is just focussed on the one that got away. It's a human story.  A work inspired by the paintings of The Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens.

Died of natural causes. All animals have all necessary paperwork that enables you to own them 100% legal.

MOA-INFERNO EQUUS.jpg

Title: INFERNO EQUUS

Price: £ 40,000
Dimensions:
H 160 cm W 140 cm D 100 cm

A mysterious composition of war horses on a burned antique base. This work, part of the TIER exhibit at MOA Museum, was exhibited with a painting of Dutch artist Armando. This painting, called 'Waldstuck 7-6-99', was saved from the fire in Armando's previous museum in Amersfoort, the Netherlands. The horses, who have antique cannonballs for eyes, seemed to galop into this dark burned forrest. One of the horses stands out because of his special manes that are curled like the wigs of 17th century french generals and notables. This refers to Lodewijk Napoleon who used to live in the building of MOA Museum. Altogether this is a very special art piece. One of the highlights of the TIER expo.

Scarlet-Ibis-II.jpg

Title: UNKNOWN POSE BY
SCARLET IBIS II

Price: ON REQUEST

Unknown Pose by Scarlet Ibis II. Edition of 3. Special Edition limited to 3 prints.
Framed in a 17th century 'van Gooyen' profile black wooden circular frame with Museum Glass.

Size framed: 174 x 174 cm (68.5 x 68.5 in).

The works from the 'Unknown Poses Collection' are directly related to the DS&vT taxidermy process, which requires enormous patience and dedication. Before being mounted, the animal, reptile and bird skins are carefully bathed to ensure they are as clean and bright as possible. While these empty skins float in the soapy water, they seem to be revived back into life, performing a sort of graceful water ballet. Sinke and van Tongeren wanted to capture the magic of this poetic and mesmerising effect in these bold and spectacular photographs.
