Designed by Vittorio Gennari (2020), this penguin’s dab gesture refers to a pose struck by athletes after an exceptional performance or by footballers after a goal, a gesture of pride that recognizes a great feat, imitated by millions of young people around the globe.
60% of the world’s penguins have disappeared over the last 50 years, yet this penguin seems to say ‘I'm here and I'm a hero’. This call for attention is meant to raise awareness about what’s happening to those (besides us) who live on planet Earth. Designed using the low-poly technique, this ceramic penguin is defined by a few lines, while its facets are emphasized by the introduction of precious metal enamel. As essential as possible, it's as if the penguin were disappearing. A result is a form that suggests a presence that is slowly being reduced until it disappears, a representation of the time that is coming to an end. In support of animals threatened by climate change, BOSA will donate a part of its earnings from the sale of this animal sculpture to WWF.
DAB PENGUIN can be ordered in variety of precious metals finishes, please call us or email to inquire about available options.
