The deer is really special. We saw it at the Armory Show in New York and we were transfixed by it, but it wasn’t for sale. We asked if the artist had another one and the representative said no but would ask if the artist would be willing to sell it. A year later, we were able to buy it. The deer is an Eastern Asian deer species one can find in many areas of the world, from animals that have escaped or been resettled. Japanese artist Kohei Nawa hunted his deer on Internet search engines, and acquired it by online auction. Part of the “PixCell” series, the stuffed deer head has been covered with glass prisms and marbles.
