Painted gourds

"Capuchin with Clementine" was completed in December 2008 by Lisa Hoffman, and was created to resemble the paw of a Capuchin monkey holding an orange. The sculpture was created from a winged gourd, three-dimensional and acrylic paints. This is one of only a few pieces that have been released from the artist's vast personal collection. The gourd currently resides in a private collection, in a location that will remain undisclosed for security reasons.
