Dumitru Traian Tili is present in the exhibition opened at the Senso Gallery with a chiselled brass work entitled: Little Turtle; in fact, the work portrays a venerable turtle, described naturalistically, with a scientific biologist’s interest; tending to the object of his research, the artist describes it voluptuously and patiently, without exaggeration or omission; in one of the two three dimensional pieces, an armour clad figure rides on the animal’s carapace, holding a lance in his hands; the artist thus provides the same treatment for the substance comprising the man’s metal buckler and the keratin coating, rather suggesting a hybrid figure, invented for the bestiary of a cabinet of curiosities.
