Posing on the Croisette - Cannes


Who is this here posing on the Croisette at the Cannes Film Festival??


Who has created these rather arresting and striking creatures??


They are sculptures by "Rabarama" - the pseudonym of Italian contemporary artist Paola Epifani from Rome who was exhibiting at galeries Bartoux in Cannes during the recent Film Festival....


Her work is characterised by these large sculptures of posed figures - men, women and strange hybrid creatures whose skin is decorated and patterned with symbols, letters, designs, and hieroglyphs...


Check out the Galeries Bartoux who host very interesting contemporary exhibitions, and check out more of Epifani's work at her website www.rabarama.com . PS - Here are the more conventional posers from the Croisette amidst the glitz and glamour of the Cannes Film Festival - Enjoy!!

Was surprised and delighted to learn that the sculptor is a woman. Wonderful work. As for the pictures of the other posers, or poseurs, I can only imagine how astonished you were to meet Barbie in person.
