Brown Dog by Patty Grazini
Made entirely of paper, this incredible piece by Patty Grazini is inspired by classic baroque paintings of people and their pets. The connection people feel with their pets was as obvious then, as it is now. It was in that spirit of connection that Patty endeavored to produce a tangible expression of that sentiment. Her greatest challenge was to create the illusion that the central figure had left the painting, and reappeared in the image of their pet. The result is one very special moment suspended in time. 15" x 9.5" x 6.5" (17" high with stand)
