Catalogue Note

"In amazing triumphs over the impossible – doing a somersault on the high wire, teetering atop stacked chairs on one man’s shoulders, dancing on the rosin-back of a galloping Friesian, whip-cracking roaring lions jumping through fire, or kissing an upright, waving cobra – there is an exciting sense of impending danger, disaster … Yet not without Botero’s infectious humor and redemptive spirit in moments of poetic beauty, comic tomfoolery, and many hilarious performances."
