Description of the artwork

La Pomme Bouche by Claude Lalanne can be considered with the Choux Patte as the two most emblematic creations of this artist. If the Pomme Bouche was published in many copies, our Pomme d'Or has the great particularity of having been cast in gold and in a edition of only 5 pieces. This extraordinary preciousness and this very great rarity make it an extraordinary object. Its date of creation, 1970, and its exceptional provenance confirm this sculpture as one of the most sought-after pieces by this incomparable artist. It is also important to note all the sensuality that emanates from this almost erotic apple, whose details differ from the Pomme Bouche.
