Picasso's Goat

Picasso's Goat

 

77" x 48" x 24". Recycled steel, found objects. 2018

 

This iconic steel goat is an homage inspired by Pablo Picasso's She Goat sculpture.

It stands 77" tall and is made from both found-object and fabricated parts. It represents optimism and a love of life, hope for the future as well as being an archetypal symbol of persistence and adaptation.

The little bird on her back is me, the grateful artist, standing on the shoulders of giants.

The sculpture is incredibly strong, durable and weatherproof, resistant to UV damage, and safe for public interaction. It is coated with a heat treated titanium oxide patina, and the base is powder coated. This will protect the steel from weathering and prevent oxidation.
