Meat and Greek Sculpture2003 by Honoré Sharrer

The artist was interested in the French butchers of her time in Paris. The sculpture she includes is based on the Greek work, Calf-Bearer, 560 BCE now in the Acropolis Museum, Athens.

Here the Museum suggests her interest in illustrating the difference between the commercial and poetic view of a common subject.
