the animal sculptures

The animal sculptures of Athena Jahantigh

The animal sculptures of Athena Jahantigh, who has resided in France since 2003, transport us back to an immense iconographic heritage, creating an inspirational and nostalgic bond with her native Iran, and marries to perfection her other great creative source of rock painting. The results are these little marvels of hieratic and callipygous animals with strong and sensual forms, and a particularly modern sculptural presence. These are thoroughly contemporary pieces, yet deeply rooted in an ancient culture !
