Oiseau lunar, Lunar Bird – bronze, 1966-1983

“For this curious creature, Lunar Bird, Miro based himself on figures from Prehistoric of Pre-Columbian art. This sculpture was made in different sizes and in various materials, such as olive wood, granite, and Carrara marble. This largest version in bronze is almost four meters tall. It is here exhibited for the first time ever. A smaller from 1966 is on view in the Rijksmuseum’s atrium.”
