Impressive Primate Ceramic Sculptures by Elena Salmistraro

Italian artist Elena Salmistraro has a beautiful collection of ceramic sculptures. Ornate and diverse, the series pays homage to our primate brethren, while also taking cues from the style of ancient Roman pottery.

We love the texture of the faces, and the way the gold detail really bring the primates to life with depth and richness. Via Inspiration Grid:


“A collection of vases in fine ceramic, a contemporary reinterpretation of ancient Roman pottery, famous for its typical animist and friendly character, when objects were not inert beings but had their own ‘soul’, the ceramic vases collection Primates is a powerful conceptual reminder that draws our attention to the delicate relationship that exists between man and ape.”
