Product description

Athena Jahantigh is an Iranian-born artist who has lived and worked in France since 2003. Her animal sculptures, fashioned in bronze and clay, are austere in finish but complex in their ideation. Whilst distinctly contemporary, Jahantigh’s sculptures traverse history, drawing inspiration from ancient rock paintings, the iconography of her native Iran, and the reduced forms of Modernists like Brancusi. They are imbued with nostalgia and reverence for her home country and its history. 

Jahantigh’s menagerie of characters have a stately presence, a sense of self-assuredness and pride in their roots. Their exaggerated proportions afford them a sensual curvaceousness and an elegant allure. While some stand in a meditative stillness, others are caught in motion, frozen in mid-leap or at the moment of take-off.  

1 edition of this artwork is currently in stock in Sydney. Additional editions are available by order.
