Thumbelina book sculpture and light by AnemyaPhotoCreations Thumbelina book sculpture and light by AnemyaPhotoCreations
"Thumbelina" ("La petite Poucette")

Medium: french book "Andersen - Contes"
Edition Rencontre Lausanne - 1968

Here we are the book sculpture is complete ! 
As you can see, I've chosen to represent a scene from the famous Andersen's Tale: Thumbelina.
I chose this one because this tale if full off beautiful feelings and nature and also because it was one of my favorite when i was a child. 

So i've decided to represent the scene where Thumbelina, thanks to fishes and a butterfly succeed in escaping from the ugly toad, who wants to marry her and who's preparing the "state-room" down under the river mud... 

As usual this sculpture is made off the pages of the book as if the story was coming to life...
About 160 working hours.
Lighting by 3 LEDs.

Sculpture reserved for future exhibition.

"La petite Poucette"

Livre support: Andersen - Contes
Editions Rencontre Lausanne - 1968 

La sculpture est enfin terminée et je vous remercie d'avoir choisi avec moi le livre qui allait faire naitre la 1ère sculpture de cette nouvelle année ! :)
Merci car j'ai redécouvert un conteur à l'imaginaire de génie et fait connaissance avec un homme très touchant. Je n'ai pas fini de m'en inspirer ! ;)

J'ai donc choisi ce conte pour la richesse des sentiments exprimés par l'auteur et par cette nature luxuriante qu'il décrit. J'avoue aussi que ce dernier a bercé mon enfance et que c'est agréable de s'y replonger et d'accéder à cette innocence qui m'habitait alors...
La scène représentée est celle où Poucette, alors prisonnière d'un vilain crapaud et de sa mère, arrive à s'échapper grâce à des poissons qui vont libérer la feuille de son ancrage dans la boue de la rivière et à un papillon auquel Poucette attachera un côté de sa ceinture pour qu'il l'emmène en volant très loin ! 

Comme d'habitude et vous avez pu le suivre, la sculpture a été réalisée à la main, avec les pages du livre et a demandé environ 160h de travail. 
L'éclairage est apporté par 3 LED.

Cette sculpture est réservée pour une future exposition.
