Historical Description

Sliced vertically into three delicate pieces, Arman creates an exquisite, nearly life size sculpture of a saxophone. Though this saxophone is disjointed and disconnected, it retains a sense of uniformity, as if the pieces could easily fit back together to form a solid instrument. Separated,however, the piece relays a sense of fragility; the instrument appears to nearly float above its dark green, marble base, connected only by thin, bronze, strips that quiver at the slightest movement. Arman does not lose any detail in this depiction; each lever and button is clearly conveyed in this sculpture; so accurate is his depiction that the viewer cannot help but feel as if Arman cut a real instrument rather than casting it in bronze with nickel plating.

Created in 1984, this original bronze sculpture is hand signed by Fernandez Arman (Nice, 128 - New York, 2005) along the lower side of the sculpture and numbered from the edition of 150.
