TIME'S SLIPPING, Ancient Greek Sandal, shoe sculpture
The artwork Time’s slipping was inspired by (a replica of) ancient 2000 year old Greek Sandals. Anne chased the copper sandals in the old artisan way, on an anvil with several hammers and a bold hot flame, and brought history back to life.
The title TIME’S SLIPPING refers to time and antiquity and to ‘slip’ and ‘slippers’. For Anne this play on words is an urge to pick the day: another way of saying ‘Carpe Diem’.
Anne gave the Sandals a beautiful natural curving in the sole, as a footprint in the sand. Colors of the copper go from brownish red and light copper tone, to dark grey as a result of the heating.
The right sandal is signed ANNE KLEIN H. and bears the year 2019. The left Sandal reads TIME’S SLIPPING.
Measures: life size, shoe size 42 (EU)
Material: copper, leather, steel
Choose the color of the leather straps:
you can choose natural brown, blackish blue or blue-ish grey straps.
Please let us know which color you’d prefer when ordering.
THE PRICE ABOVE IS FOR ONE PAIR OF SANDALS, and includes free shipping and insurance
Easy mounting to the wall because of a little hole in the sole: a single nail will be sufficient. But the shoes will also make a great standing sculpture.
