This is a lifesize work from Pavel Althamer from Warsaw in the 1990s. Pavel specialised in this sort of work at that time and is one of Poland's most well known contemporary artists. He studied at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts between 1988-1993, earning a degree in sculpture under Prof Grzegorz Kowalski. In 2004, Althamer received the prestigious Vincent Van Gogh Biannual Award, founded by the Broere Charitable Foundation of the Netherlands. He has exhibited at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Guggenheim, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, the Tate Museum in London and various other well known museums and galleries around Europe, Russia and the world.
