NEW YORK—A stunning gorilla bust greets visitors as they enter Bertrand Delacroix. The bronze sculpture is part of a series by French artist Quentin Garel featured at the gallery. The collection of metal animal busts stands out among the work on view at the gallery’s group show this month. Precisely carved, the sculptures include details such as graining, giving the metal works the look of wood. The “trophies” have amazing life-like features that are so artful, the primates could be mistaken for bounty from a hunting expedition; While others look like fossils from a natural history museum.
The sculptures are part of a group exhibit that runs throughout April at Bertrand Delacroix.

Great pictures! I’d suggest a swap between “e” et “s” in Crane de Mores” (should be “Crane de Morse”).
Thanks for the catch.
