Profile image of Francois ViljoenFrancois Viljoen is a South African born artist, now lives in the south west part of Baden Württemberg, Germany. In many ways arts influenced and marked his life from the start. He was in a only Academic+Sport school with no art classes, This was quite frustrating, but then the creative process, esp. drawing, became a passion and big interest in his teenage years, following a long, weekly TV series called, "Quest for Romanticism". He then started to draw, more and more. "It was like finding my call in life and meaning... Like bringing order to...

Sculpture description:
Lizard in Art Nouveaux Bronze Bowl sculpture. Bronze Entrapped Lizard Reptile in Bowl sculpture statuette bowl for Sale for Indoors Inside interior Display in the House or Home by the Imaginative Animal sculptor François Viljoen who writes... "Like the mythological stories of the Sirens, dangerous yet beautiful creatures, who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. The motif or idea in this artwork, was the gecko or salamander creature, tempted by the shapes and form of the pattern on the vessel, and then falls into the trap and struggles to escape. The form/pattern which once intrigued him, now becomes alive, and tries to keep him captive. The flat 2D lines becomes alive, with shape and form (3D). Its maybe the struggle we all have with the empty and at times, dangerous lies (siren songs) of the materialistic/consumerism society we live in. The circular pattern on the vessel is that of the Strangler-fig.

Customer comment on 'Nocturne (Large Owl High Relief Wall Plaque sculpture)' by Wesley Wofford
Hi Peter, I saw the `Majestic` buck that Wesley did and adored it, but I wanted something original. So we tossed ideas around with Wesley and finally decided on the owl. Wesley was so incredible to work with, providing us ongoing progress updates as he went along.

I can`t begin to express how incredibly talented we feel Wesley ... [Read more]
