Sitzende Ente

Bronze sculpture details

Schlotter’s animal sculptures were often not merely a depiction of the respective animal; he was also fascinated by the interplay of various shapes and forms which arise from the different poses of the animals. This rather unconventional duck sculpture is the outcome. It shows the animal crouched low on the ground, its tail feathers pressed on the earth like a fan, its head, neck and arched belly bent backwards. It is an utmost tensed, expectant portrayal of the animal. In the next moment one anticipates that it will straighten itself and fly away.

Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
