This incomparable sculpture, entitled Les trois Oiseaux, has a 19th century antique French yoke from south-west France as its centre element. This agricultural tool made of the hardest oak has served for years as the connecting element between 2 oxen, a plow and a farmer.
Farming the land before the Industrial Revolution was arduous and physically taxing whilst at the same time very successful and satisfying in providing food for the community. This sculpture honours the hard work of the animals and their owners. By placing the yoke vertically it gives it a graceful look, a respectful tribute to all the hard work of our ancestors.
Various other elements including an oxidized cast iron piece of three birds, multiple pieces of porcelain, create a joyful, colorful event.
