Catalogue Note

"The animal sculptures of Fernando Botero express quite a different spirit...Botero's horses, dogs, cats, birds, and snakes are part of his own highly inventive world of fantasy and play. They embody the same principles as his sculptures of the human form, investigating the potentials of roundness, pliability, and texture." 

Edward Sullivan, Botero Sculpture, New York 1986, p. 127
