About Dogman thought a bird in the hand is always better 1/50
Fanciful and fun, Gillie and Marc’s art is designed to be accessible. Their popular hybrid sculptures are playful but love and an appreciation for the spiritual connection that humans share with animals is always part of the story. Here a reclining dogman figure observes a bird sitting on his hand. The proverbial saying, ‘a bird in hand is worth two in the bush,’ is referenced meaning that it is better to hold onto something than to risk losing it by trying to obtain something better.
