Saluki (Greyhound) – by Renée Marcus Janssen
Renée Marcus Janssen specializes in three-dimensional portraits of animals, in bronze. Her series, Animali Antichi (Ancient Animals), includes character portrayals of historic animals, each with a story of its own. Each of these portraits is more than a handsome reproduction of her subject’s outward appearance. It is a monumental tribute to wildlife and vulnerability of their existence. In bronze, Renée Marcus Janssen uniquely captures the particular character and individual traits of each of her subjects.
