"Such ample Rubenesque perfection occurs rarely in our cosmos and is rendered yet more serendipitous by the stringency of modern retail supply chains, the diametric opposite of art in an age of its natural or indeed mechanical reproducibility.

In its unprepared, unpulverized and untinned state it somehow references a latent Cambellian, that is to say proto-Warholian state. In its evocation of human forms it simultaneously recalls and references the work of Arcimboldo, as well as a fully ripened take on Picasso's symbol of resilience and hope."

Any unsuccessful bidder or observer may admire these photographs of the item free of charge."
