Orthus

A sculpture of the two-headed dog Orthus, assembled from two broken 18th-century Blanc de Chine porcelain hounds and placed on a wooden base in a steel case. Bouke de Vries found the broken porcelain dogs in an auction house; they belonged to the owner of the auction house but were dropped by one of his employees. Bouke reinterpreted the broken ceramics, giving them new life and meaning.
