There is the obvious resemblance here to the famous Botticelli painting, Birth of Venus, where the goddess Venus makes her way to shore having emerged, fully grown, from a clam shell.  This particular bronze figure is of a female actually forming a part of and merging with a large sea shell. Perhaps similarly, both pieces are looking at the ‘humanising’ of legends, myths and even feelings etc. Maybe this piece by Arturas is humanising the close relationship between people and the sea?  The fact that the sea has forever been such a rich source of food and life and inspiration for humans?
Whatever the thought process was, we simply adore it. Apart from being really interesting to look at, from the detail on the shell to the colours used in the patination, this piece is also really tactile and in fact you find yourself regularly drawn to touching it. It also has a somewhat optimistic feel to it, as the female figure stares lovingly toward the sky; perhaps gazing at the stars or maybe heralding the sun, but either way, admiring mother natures masterpiece. Another truly engaging artwork by the Lithuanian born but Irish resident artist, Arturas Karabanovas. Be sure to go through all the accompanying imagery here to get a real sense of this beautiful sculpture.

Your Shipping Choices Explained

NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned. 

We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination.  This option would be at your own risk.

We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)

Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged.  For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.

For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
