Georges Lucien Guyot "Babouin" Patinated Bronze Sculpture
This "Babouin," or "Baboon," patinated bronze sculpture by Georges Lucien Guyot, executed by Susse Fondeur in Paris is a wonderful piece that brings the architectural wonder that every eye delights in from the Art Deco period and applies it to a beloved natural subject of the baboon. The blockiness of the composition, far from taking away from the animal's natural beauty, seems only to enhance the animal's innate sense of fortitude and strength.
