About the work
Bronze crocodile on wooden globe 135 cm (53,15”) Base: 80x80x35 cm (31,5”x31,5”x13,8”). This bronze crocodile on globe represents humans identity in the makable world of 21st century. In this time of uncertainty with virtual and opaque powers, epidemics, inequality and living in a hurry; You have to to be a fighter without any fear. To survive, to live, to overrule. Humility and modesty don't pay anymore.
So; at the same time, the turbulent time we live also offers chances for daredevils and risk-takers. We should use opportunities, rather than always let the red rage taking hold of You in the thick of battle.
