    This bronze with brown patina represents an old peasant, dressed in his kimono and his Chinese hat, riding on the back of a domestic buffalo. Borrowed from many legends, the buffalo is the animal that conveys the human soul to the afterlife. Here, this could be translated by the posture of the man, raising his hand as if to say goodbye, and ready to descend from the animal to pass to the other side...
    A decorative element paying homage to Asian culture, in all its symbolism of life and death.
