Liz Zambelli and her polar bears

The State Historical, Architectural and Art Museum-Reserve Tsaritsyno invites you to visit the exhibition of the famous French ceramist“Liz Zambelli and her polar bears”.

The hero of all the works presented is the polar bear, which is now in danger of extinction.

In France, environmental foundations and communities often choose as their symbolpolar bear, which was sculpted by an animal sculptor at the beginning of the 20th centuryFrancois Pompon. The sculpture, revolutionary for its time, has not yet become obsolete, the Pompon bear becomes the hero of children's books, is cast from chocolate to celebrate the anniversary of the Salon du Chocolat, is assembled from the details of the Lego designer, tirelessly copied as a city park sculpture. In the miniature bears of Liz Zambelli, the features of the marble sculpture of Pompon are certainly guessed. But they were not created from durable marble, but from fragile porcelain. “I want to convey the poetry and tenderness of this image, to emphasize the drama of the dying titanium,” says Liz, “the Polar Bear can soon remain only porcelain.”
