Large French Deconstructed Clawed Lobster Sculpture in a Glass and Brass Case

$9,500

About

Large deconstructed clawed lobster mounted on a wooden base with a patinated brass and glass display case. The deconstruction technique was invented by anatomist Edmé François Chauvot de Beauchêne in France in the 19th century and involves the meticulous disassembly of all the components of a skull or crustacea; in this case, re-articulating and positioning them in an exploded array on a copper wire support. This technique was also used by Leonardo da Vinci in his anatomical drawings.
