We know Leonardo da Vinci's "Lady with Ermine". Gaël Rouxeville was also inspired by the beautiful animal, and treated it in a resolutely contemporary way: both static by its posture, and very dynamic by the treatment of curves (which induces the beginning of a movement). Under its patinated clear lacquer, it takes on a quasi-mineral aspect that takes us out of reality.
The surprising material thus created blends perfectly with the solid oak wood base. The ermine is also called the white lady (hence the title), because of its immaculate coat during the winter period...
This work has benefited from all the artist's know-how to bring you perfect satisfaction over time (quality wood, lacquers and varnishes). Three copies were made, each with a different base, one of which entered a public collection. Sculpture numbered 2/3, dated and signed by the artist.
