This sculpture is a fine interpretation of the crocodile's physical peculiarities. The horny back contrasts expressively with the fleshy folds around the neck and eyes. The tense posture of the plump legs suggests the weight of the beast.
Purchased from Jasper Gaunt and Robert Hecht, New York, 1992. Published in BMMA Fall 1992 and subsequently, continuously exhibited.
