Word Verification

Elephant is one of Jaroslav Ježek’s figures which are captured in a relatively realistic way – it is they lack the transformed proportions and the abstract approach. The individual parts of the body have standard dimensions and shape but, as usual, excessive details are reduced to the necessary minimum. The figure is rather compact. The trunk and tail enclose it instead of giving it dynamics as one would imagine on the basis of many other representations of this animal. The nicks on the animal’s sides, evoking wrinkled skin, suggest that Ježek created the Elephant in the early 1960s which is also proved by the old sing Royal Dux.
