Sculpture description:
Bronze Life Size Chameleon on Bamboo sculpture statuette for sale for Interior Decoration in the House or Home by the Observant Wild Life Sculptor François Viljoen who writes... "Chameleon" means "earth lion" and is derived from the Greek words chamai (on the ground, on the earth) and leon (lion). It is know for its ability to change colours, and fit into the surroundings, and also for camouflage. On a more abstract level it can relate to the human trait to adopt or change in order to fit in. According to Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation" rated "love/belonging" as 3rd important human need. And in Bronze Chameleon on Gourd sculpture Prowling Chameleon sculpture for sale for Indoors Inside Interior decoration by the International Philosophical Sculptor François Viljoen. He writes....... "In order to "fit in", we change ourselves (our looks?), to fit into a group or to be more like another person. This is at times, even done unknowingly. The modern fashion trends is a example of this. Even the punk movement, who, seemingly rebelled against the fashion industry, but created their own “uniform”/dress code, but even this was a specific dress code by which they were accepted as one of the group. The sphere shaped, bronze vessel/container features a Chameleon moving slowly through the bamboo branches.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Brasil - Chess (Corporate Commission of an entire edition)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Although it seemed a daunting project to commission a sculpture on the internet with a tight deadline, Plamen Dimitrov in Bulgaria made it as easy as possible for me in Brazil by producing a series of little clay sketches after each email and sending photos it seemed by return. He worked round the clock and was incredibly intuitive with his understanding of what I wanted. This was despite an 8 hour time difference and having poor English as our common language. He w...
