Can a sculpture be a perfect representation of reality and of those abstract feelings related to it? Yes it can; and to show us it’s something possible there is the artist Barry Davies. A sculptor able to state the strength of a regal animal as the lion, through a static figure made up of a solid and dark material. A spectacular triumph of elegant details and an intrinsic dynamism are the main features of this artwork, homage not only to the world of art, but to the world of nature and its creatures.’
