Serengeti is a bit of a departure from his usual studies. A beautifully balanced ,striking bust of a zebra, the lines are clean and sharp. Using a rich patina, Starck captures the distinctive markings of the animal, its bristling mane and cocked, ever-attentive ears, precisely and accurately. The unique striations of the zebra lend themselves to Starck’s realism and graphic dexterity. The fin-ished bronze Serengeti is both statuesque and incredibly life-like.
