The sculptures by Dutch artist Miep Maarse are optimistic in tone and message. Through her sculptures she shows us her positive view on the world and humanity.
Animals play a major role in Miep Maarse's sculptures. Hippos, elephants and bears serve as a source of inspiration. She knows how to exploit the light-hearted gravity and tenderness of these powerhouses in a professional and original way. Her animals do not become humans, but acquire recognizable human features.
