 “The animal sculptures of Athena Jahantigh, transport us back to an immense iconographic heritage, creating an inspirational and nostalgic bond with her native Iran, and marrying to perfection her other great creative source, rock painting. The results are these little marvels of hieratic and callipygous animals with strong and sensual forms and a particularly modern sculptural presence.
These are thoroughly contemporary pieces, yet deeply rooted in an ancient culture!” Nigel Atkins
