In this tureen, an adult sandgrouse is perched and proud while two of its young enjoy the protection and comfort of its body.
The artist is known for works that depict the daily bustle of birds and bees, often reflecting a maternal or caring nature. Sandgrouse males and females share the incubation duties, with the male collecting water with his sponge-like feathers for the nourishment of his chicks.
The painter uplifts the vessel with muted, earthy tones, honouring the natural colouring of the sandgrouse, which results in an outstanding palette.
