Hello again! This is called Great capitalist selfportrait It´s a selfportrait of me as a piggybank.
It´s a very special work of art because it´s the only work of art that buyer can increase its value just inserting coins thru its slot. Increassing its value in this easy way buyer does not need to worry about the fluctuating art market.
As an exception it´s not made of wood but terra-cota and epoxi resin.

Giacometti´s new doll
I made this wood carved doll thinking about the walking men sculptures of Giacometti.
It is a fragmented walking doll that I think Giacometti would like to have in his toy´s room.

When I was a child the spanish gipsies used to come to my neigborhood to make a kind of street-circus-show. One of them played an "spanish pasodoble" on his trumpet

Then a goat climbed to the top of a can on the top of a ladder

In the late 80´s new laws make those improvised street shows disappear.

This wooden sculpture is a tribute to those gipsies of my childhood
