Oh, mon Dieu! This is the porcelain work of French artist Juliette Clovis. Butterflies, flowers, and spiky growths! Here is part of her statement about this body {pun totally intended} of work:

“… [Juliette’s] women are completely transformed into hybrid beings, mixes of history, myths and chimerical dreams. The female bodies are invaded by a profusion of wildlife and flora elements, evoking a nature that is both soft and worrying. Like a Hitchcock-inspired scene, we can almost hear the noise of the jungle: the flapping of a bird’s wings, the slither of a creeping snake or the croak of a frog.”

Yes! The moment I saw that bird-covered bust, I have to admit… it gave me a little Hitchcock shudder! So glad I didn’t see any snakes in her portfolio.

    These are gorgeous! I can almost imagine all the birds and butterflies suddenly whisking away.

    these are wonderful! are you familiar with Camilla d’Erico’s paintings? The bust with the birds and butterflies remind me of her work.
