Description

He is a contemporary fetish artist noted especially for his impossibly delicate insect carvings in fossil ivory.

Here, he has depicted an insect-eater, in beautiful, translucent peach alabaster. The entire carving is cut out from one slab of stone, as is his usual method.

The anteater, the rock on which he is braced, and the tree stump that holds his dinner are all cleanly delineated and carefully detailed. The fur of the animal, the wood of the tree and the smoother rock are all meticulously textured.

The gradations in the delicate beauty of the alabaster suggests the late afternoon sun shining through, creating a glow in all things, even the most mundane.

This is a most unusual subject for a fetish; collectors take note.
