camel was originally created for ArtWorks in Dubai. Multiples were
produced in fiberglass, both this size and 6 feet high, painted
upon by local artists, displayed around Dubai, and then auctioned
off to benefit charities. It was Dubai's first public art project!
Enough time has passed since the 2003 project that I have been given
permission to cast this edition of bronzes, which I was eager to
do as I think "Lulu" (the sculpture's Dubai name) has
so much personality. Camels are such interesting looking animals
to me that I enjoyed this rare (for me) depiction of an ungulate."
