Wall plaque "Lady with playmate V", 23 x 23 cm

As Goethe mused in his memoirs, “Why roam afar when what’s good is so near?”. Given that some of life’s most engaging scenes take place just a street or so away, that’s a canny observation. Experiencing people bumping into other people or animals can be extremely engrossing! The things you get to see when you’re out shopping, waiting for the bus or in the corner café can sometimes top any comedy show, bizarre unfoldings lent added zest by one’s own fecund imagination.

The urge to record day-to-day events is a crucial part of any artist’s creative drive. This particular set of graphic images by Prof. Werner was the result of a number of encounters he has recently had. He reveals the animal in humanity and vice versa. Women and animals is the underlying idea. The upshot: day dreams captured on Meissen porcelain.

Two pairs of button eyes gaze at each other, slender silhouettes with limbs as supple as rubber. Music permeates the house. The animal recognises Duke Ellington from the first note. A monkey as pet - can’t get much cooler than that! There is banter and laughter as they charge through the huge garden. But when she turns to the monkey, it motions to indicate she’s crazy.
