I will be exhibiting Anesthesia- The Dream Dealers Daughter. This will be the first time that a version of this bust has been available to purchase. This is the only one of its kind in the world. Hand cast, verdigris finish cold-cast resin from the original clay sculpture.
Anesthesia has been coerced into a disagreeable arrangement.
Her father is a dealer in dreams.
Thus he must procure stock. To this end he employs the services of one Hugo Crane, a person with a unique ability to extract dream essence from unsuspecting victims.
But sometimes a specific target is required, the dreams of a certain person requested for a fee by another.
Sometimes that target must be induced to sleep so their nocturnal imaginings may be harvested.
And this is where poor Anesthesia is forced to aid her father’s underhand cooperative.
You see Anesthesia is able to induce slumber with a simple song.
Polyester resin bust.
Inspired by the work of Raffaele Monti (1818–1881)
