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...

'The Mantis` Secret (Praying Mantis Bowl sculpture)' by Francois Viljoen
Description: Little Praying Mantis&Bowl sculpture, Preying Mantis Hunting statue for sale for Indoors inside Interior use by the Gifted and Original Sculptor Francois Viljoen who writes.... "The Praying Mantis name comes from the typical "prayer-like" posture with folded fore-limbs, although the Eggcorn "preying mantis" is sometimes used in reference to their predatory habits. The insect order contains over 2400 species and 430 genera. For me, the Mantis is a very secretive creature and fascinated me from childhood and for me, a strong symbol, and metaphor, of peacefulness, quietness, inner tranquillity and strength. The Greek word "mantis" means "prophet". From where I come from in South Africa, the Kalahari Bushmen has got very strong beliefs regarding the Mantis and in ancient China the Mantis has strong symbolic meaning and features in many folk tales. To them it represents "strength, courage and boldness".

'Bamboo Visitor (Chameleon Hunting sculpture statue)' by Francois Viljoen
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.

'Spider Monkey 1 Bowl (bronze Primate sculpture)' by Francois Viljoen
Description: Small Bronze Spider Monkey&Bowl statue for sale for Indoors by the Naturalist sculptor François Viljoen, who writes.... " Spider-monkey species are listed as "Endangered" by either USESA or IUCN. Found in tropical rain forests of Central, South America and Mexico. Weighs 5 to 9kg and can move through trees as fast as a human can run. It has no thumb, but with a very interesting tail that works like a fifth arm making it a super acrobat. Motif: "See, Hear and Speak no evil". Witticism/Idiom originally came from idea of "The three wise monkeys" over the Tosho-gu shrine in Nikko, Japan with various meanings including associations with being of good mind, speech and action. In the Western world the phrase is often used to refer to a lack of moral responsibility on the part of people who refuse to acknowledge impropriety. Or "looking the other way".

'The Shrew (bronze Shrew on Exotic Leaf statuette)' by Francois Viljoen
Description: Mouse bronze sculpture statuette for sale for Indoors Inside Interior display by the Talented Sculptor François Viljoen, who writes..... "Elephant Shrew Macroscelidea is not really a mouse, and not even a real Shrew. They are also called Sengis, a term derived from the Bantu languages of Africa. They are mostly from Africa and eats mostly insects. Known for its long nose, long tail, thin legs and super speed. They are not highly social animals, but many live in monogamous pairs. They`re very active, but very seldom seen; elephant shrews are wary, well camouflaged, and adept at jumping or dashing away from threats. Words that came to mind while working on this project were: "alertness or readiness". The Bowl itself, in this work, had an organic and fauna origin/inspiration.

'Captive Invader (Small bronze Lizard statuettes)' by Francois Viljoen
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.

'Strangler Fig Platter (Arte Deco Dish Plate sculpture)' by Francois Viljoen
Description: The Strangler Fig is a incredible plant, very beautiful (fully grown), but also very deadly. It latches onto other tree. The roots begin to thicken and they completely surround the host tree. The host tree begins to suffer as less and less nutrients from the soil can make it up to the leaves, the pathways blocked and crushed by the Strangler. After some years the host tree dies and the fig tree, now strong enough to stand on its own carries on living while the host tree wither`s and dies.
