Pushing the envelope


Sculpture shadow box
63 x 69 x 13 cm

Animator David Kracov opened his world to new artistic expressions thanks to an order for a sculpture, placed by the Holocaust Museum in Saint Petersburg, Florida. He proposed a metal sculpture of the Tasmanian devil ripping the roof off a wagon from which hundreds of colourful butterflies would escape, representing the souls of the innocent children lost in the tragedy of the Holocaust. All of the artist’s subsequent pieces would include a butterfly, visible or hidden, in tribute to the value and fragility of children’s lives.
