The animal sculptures of ATHENA JAHANTIGH are made of sandstone or porcelain. They carry on their arched backs an immense iconographic heritage linking them to the parietal art of her native Persia, an inspiration both affective and nostalgic, which marries to perfection with her other great formal source, the cave painting. They are contemporary sculptures with deep roots. Unique pieces are entirely handmade.
Athena has a long history of pursuing her education in Fine Art from Iran to France. She lives in southern France and focusing on her long-term passion and making unique sculptures. ATHENA JAHANTIGH sculptures are exclusive to BECKER MINTY.
