"- Hello," said the fox. - Good morning," answered the little prince politely, who turned round but saw nothing. - I am here", said the voice, under the apple tree. - Who are you?" said the little prince. You are very pretty... - I am a fox", said the fox. - Come and play with me", said the little prince. I am so sad... - I cannot play with you", said the fox. I am not tame. - Ah! sorry", said the little prince. But, after some thought, he added: - What does 'tame' mean? - You are not from here", said the fox, "what are you looking for? - I am looking for men", said the little prince. What does "tame" mean? - Men, said the fox, they have guns and they hunt. That's very annoying! They also raise chickens. That's their only interest. Are you looking for chickens? - No, said the little prince. I am looking for friends. What does "tame" mean? - It is a thing too much forgotten, said the fox. It means "to create bonds..." - Bonding? - Of course, said the fox. You are still for me a little boy just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I don't need you. And you don't need me either. I am for you only a fox like a hundred thousand foxes. But, if you tame me, we will need each other. You will be for me unique in the world. I will be for you unique in the world..." Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Jean-Baptiste Boutin, whose artist name is Gibus, is a woodcarver working and living in Gironde (France).

"Follow me because I don't know where I'm going. If there is one thing I am looking for without really knowing where to find it, it is the only truth that counts: the one we owe to ourselves.

My work questions our human condition, our questions and the courage to face them. It seems to me that there is no other way than the one of sincerity at the first degree, it is necessary to be essential, obvious, and my pieces are stripped to the point of translating a hard and unvarnished existential truth. I leave only what is necessary, I conceptualize to the point of the question without a word too many. But if the background is heavy, the form is light, raw, frank and without detour. So if life removes the superficial to appear raw and cruel, I remove the wood shavings to let the matter express its truth. The mistakes are written there, the blows of the blade, those that shape us. I remove what is too much until our eyes can no longer ignore the question asked. And the piece is over, I have no answer. To my great surprise, it appears to me that the naked truth is poetry. Jean-Baptise Boutin alias Gibus
