This was about 2/3 of the way through the visit – a delightful surprise! I hadn’t seen any photos of it before seeing the real thing. “Planter des platanes pour attirer le Phénix” (“Planting Plane Trees to Attract the Phoenix”).
Here is the sketch with the real thing in the background.
Close-up of the sketch.
Panorama of the piece.
Close-up on the Phoenix – I love how you can see trees in the background through the little “window” on the left.
And finally, a close-up of the Phoenix head. Look at the detail on the neck! So lovely.
