A feather resting on cement pillows. This act of balance reflects the creation of modern day totems and objects of adoration. Additionally, fantastic creatures that the film industry depicts to society since childhood, are the base of this series of sculptures that are inspired by the story of Dumbo, the elephant. The main character is a semi-anthropomorphic elephant who is nicknamed "Dumbo", as in "dumb". He is ridiculed for his big ears, but in fact he is capable of flying by using his ears as wings. The contrast between the lightness of flying and the weight of the body are reflected in this sculpture as well.
