Large Optic Lucite Elephant by Abraham Palatnik


Mid Century Optical Illusion Elephant in “Salute” stance, wearing patterned blanket, Large size. In Clear Optic Lucite by Abraham Palatnik, Brazil, a world famous design by this great Artist. The clear Lucite is curve moulded in 2 halves, with the two dimensional Elephant designed in black dots and lines, moulded to the centre. This results in an optical illusion that creates a 3 dimensional Elephant view that also “moves” as your vision crosses the Lucite curves. This is one of the rare designs, and the first we have been able to procure in the Elephant design. It is in perfect, original condition, with the original lower sticker on the base, marked “MADE IN BRAZIL”. Authenticity guaranteed. Dimensions are approx.: 15.5cm high and 25.5cm wide x 4cm deep max. (varies). Brazil Circa 1960.
