La Belle et la Bête

The Beauty and the Beast

Charles Semser
1982

Lyon /  La Belle et la Bête   Lyon /  La Belle et la Bête

Description

Concrete sculpture of a frog on a scooter, with instead of a rear wheel the legs of a frog. It is a burlesque scene and it was Semser's intention to make people laugh. He makes fun of the modern world, he has a sense of ridicule.
The sculpture is rather damaged.
