In the early 1980s, Papa Duke produced a series of six-foot-tall flamingos. Several, in a fit of kitsch, he painted pink. Others he left naturally bronze.
The flamingo pictured here has crossed the Atlantic a number of times, and has resided, over the past quarter century, in London, Monaco, Washington DC and Santa Barbara.
This sculpture, in hollow bronze, is adored and coveted by all who have laid eyes upon it.
