I’m preparing to take a sabbatical from writing this blog, so following up an epilogue with an end seems pretty perfect! I’ve got one more interview and one announcement coming, but this will be my last post on an objet d’art for a bit. I’m happy to coincide this conclusion with the final chapter of Sergey Safonov‘s Godot character.
As soon as I received this piece (made in Moscow, couriered to a hotel in San Francisco by a friend), I knew I’d inevitably carry it to a beach to take these photos. The End of the Man is a nearly-life-size porcelain sculpture that represents the last stage of the Godot story arc. We were with Godot as a chorus boy, and we knew him as a man. Now it is time to say a fond farewell.
The 9″ x 6″ unglazed bisque porcelain bird skull is impeccably crafted and subtly nuanced. It’s available with free worldwide shipping in a limited edition directly from the artist here.
