Sculpture Dolce woman by Fons van Dommelen
£41.65 inc. tax

£41.65 ex. tax
? Tax based on United Kingdom.

This colourful sculpture portrays a woman with a red-and-golden heart hanging from her right arm. The blues and purples of the head juxtapose the red, orange, yellow and green patches of the body, as if she combined a cool head with an erotic body. The sculpture stands on a pedestal inscribed withSANERES ISIN OREMUN NON SAROH (which, if read backwards, means in Latin: Horas non numero nisi serenas – I count only the bright hours). The sentence is a motto typically found on ancient sundials to express a sentiment of the owner. The Romans took on the idea of sundials from the Greek. The first recorded Roman sundial was installed in Rome in 293 BC. The custom of measuring time by shadow has continued long after the invention of clocks.

Fons van Dommelen (*1964 in the Netherlands), the sculptor, has created a figure that combines various traditions and genres. His colourful execution is reminiscient of graffiti art sculptures and of the energetic patterns of a Niki de Saint Phalle.
