Gazelle by Nader G. Vakili


34"H x 41" diameter

Based on a love poem by the thirteenth-century Persian poet, Saadi: ‘Gazelle must have learned from you, how to take flight, then rear, and look back; but the candle, moth, and rose emulate me by shining, burning, and rending my attire.’ The original wooden Gazelle fell and broke into pieces. The pieces were sent to a foundry to create the molds from which this bronze, and two additional copies, were made. They are constructed so that the gazelle can be rotated relative to its log base. The Gazelle bronzes are intended for indoor display.
