Description

Figure 8 is a miniature double of a sculpture made by Nour’s Bishouty’s father, Ghassan Bishouty, in Lebanon c.1965. In 1969 an object of astonishing resemblance was sold by Mr. Ben Heller (New York, NY) to the Cleveland Museum of Art in Ohio, where the object is still housed today. The title of this piece is a double of a descriptive caption by Mr. John D. Cooney in “A Medley of Bulls.”, The Bulletin of the Cleveland Museum of Art 58, no. 1 (January 1971).

Bronze. Limited edition of 52. Housed in a custom wooden box with miniature poster.
