A companion piece to the Rooster Table, this mirror by Otto du Plessis echoes its semi-circular shape and graduated bronze patination. A rooster’s head perches on its highest point, looking down on the table at its own feathery display – a light-hearted touch that the technically accomplished sculptor has become known for. The exploration of beauty in his sculptures is always a vehicle for a deeper engagement with universal themes – at times solemn or macabre, and at others, with the playfulness of an indomitable optimist.
