Stunning is certainly the right word here!
It looks more like enamelled cast iron to me and rather bizarre.
I thought that too GB - such intense and shiny paint, but it is a real piano, and it is carved... The bulls are cast iron - and so are the pianos they sit on - two tonnes for each exhibit, brought back from Paris and Venice to NZ where the sculptor lives and works here in ChCh at the University.They are incredibly impressive up close - huge life size pondering beasts. I guess "Art" takes many forms!
Comments welcome....always love to hear what you think!
