View Lot Notes ›
'They're the most intact manifestation of Paleolithic life. There is a pole holding up the Big Top and you have a ring. Within that ring, animals come in and circle around: it's a model of the heaven and the Zodiac. In a three-ring circus, you have another pole for the moon, and another one for Venus. So it's basically a model of Stone Age astronomy, being done as a ballet. People take their children to circuses because we're most receptive to learning when we're young. It's one way to make sure that the information keeps getting imprinted for generations'.
(V. Dawson, quoted in 'The Outsider in: The Art of Verne Dawson', Cooper Union, Winter 2008, p. 15).

Donated by the artist.
F. Gautherot, C. Mac Giolla Léith & V. Dawson (eds.), Verne Dawson, Precession of the Equinoxes, Paintings 1994-2010, Dijon 2011.
"This antique vase has been a favorite model of mine since I purchased it for 5 euros from a sidewalk vendor in Paris ten years ago. As for the log, it is one of hundreds brought in as firewood for the wood stove in the studio. It's interesting form and voice was simply too anthropomorphic to burn. They are such a lovely couple."
