Lot Essay

"Gorille Consolé: A gorilla with a double meaning - gorillas are said to be inconsolable over being not quite human. This one is somewhat consoled by his usefulness as a console table. One might say a console consoles an inconsolable gorilla...and so on." - Francois-Xavier Lalanne and Igor Agisheff, April 4, 2008, Ury, France
