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.
Assemblage. 30x30x10cm/12x12x4inch. Statuette of a hunting animal in an old wooden drawer that is slightly rebuilt. With an inlay of various wooden blinds.
