Summary

Description
English: Paul Gauguin, 1894, Oviri (Sauvage), partially glazed stoneware (grès, céramique, terre cuite), 75 x 19 x 27 cm, Musée d'Orsay, Paris
The theme of Oviri is death, savagery, wildness. Oviri stands over a dead she-wolf, while crushing the life out of her cub. As Gauguin wrote to Odilon Redon, it is a matter of "life in death". From the back, Oviri looks like Auguste Rodin's Balzac, a sort of menhir symbolizing the gush of creativity. Source
