A bran new picture done lately in 2013 to show the aerial character of this piece. And if you want to understand it's architecture, you can look at [link]
It took all last autumn to build this piece, I finished it in the very beginning of this year.
Stone is rutiled quartz, feathers mainly come from my father's hunting, a golden cock pheasant; I had to buy other ones to can make the corrections I wanted. Leather tong is from my last meters stock, I'll have to make a trip in Italy soon, to buy more of this magic material. The snake skeleton is lined on a complex of 18 stainless steel cables gained in plastic. Locker is made of the usual lips carved from Cypraea Arabica from Sri-Lanka, and 2 black Narita Striata from Palawan. As usualy, I used as ligatures my synthetic partialy wax coated thick thread.
An other geminy parement of this is under making and will be ready before this summer I hope.
