Golden Panda

12cm x 6cm


This assemblage was the product of a long process of finding the various objects and trying multiple ways of joining them together.

The key idea was the hollowing out and gilding of the found wooden block. The weather beaten driftwood appeared on Mounts Bay Beach after a storm.

The poses of the figure and panda compliment one another and reference Buddhism and christianity, two belief systems which regard animals in quite different ways.
