About the work: (Catalogue Essay)
Early in 1970 Wifredo Lam followed the advice of his friend the Spanish sculptor, Miguel Berrocal, into realizing limited editions of his work. Together they chose one of Lam's typical and recognizable pieces: the bird, and worked on the concept of "oiseau de fer et oiseau de feu." Two birds in different colors, one in brass and the other in nickel plated brass. Lam, the painter, appointed Berrocal, the sculptor, to solve the technical part: all the process, from the first prototype, made into several elements for casting purposes, to the finished casting was supervised directly by Miguel Berrocal.
