Assemblage. 40x40cm/16x16inch. Another forgotten one. Just like the juggling duck. Made in the beginning when I started to make assemblages. I probably made this one in my home or my first studio in an old school in Leiderdorp.
My dog friend Willem is spending his holiday with me. He inspired me to make this assemblage although he is more interested in the surroundings of my studio. On the picture you can see him overlooking his hunting ground. The assemblage is made in a drawer with inlay of a piece of a wooden play by Homas and some scrapwood. The frame with portrait was found in an old house and the dog in the bottom is probably from the fifties or sixties and in better days it could move around.
Made this little box a while ago but forgot to place it on my site. Found the back of the box in the woods of East Belgium. SOLD it a few days ago in De Tuin van de Smid on the border of Leiden. Little Deer is one of my favorites and by putting it on my site it will still stay with me. Picture made by Rob Vlieland Fotografie.
