Silver Moon, 2005

Bronze, nickel
201 × 137 × 175 cm

Thought provoking and provocative, Chris Ofili’s ‘Silver Moon’ (2005), is a singular take on the artist’s view on the human condition and personal relationships. He took inspiration from the Catalan figure ‘El Caganer’ who regularly appears in Nativity Scenes in the region.

‘Silver Moon’, evoking associations with fertility, given its ability to foster growth in plants and produce. The sculpture is a continuation of themes, motifs and mediums that would define Ofili’s career.
