What I would like to mention, looking at this piece today is that alot of Ilana Goor’s work was influenced by Diego Giacometti. People that buy her things or collect her work are very aware of this. On this particular table base, you see the cat and bird are very engaged; this kind of sculpture is typical Ilana. If you also look carefully she signed the bird, the cat and the table base making it very valuable. Keep in mind; Ilana’s overall work is much stronger than Giacometti and I always see a great sense of humor in it. Truly; I would like to say if you are not familiar with her work, she is a real find. Get thee to her website.
