Dr. Seuss "Andulovian Grackler" Limited Edition Sculpture #394/850 (Theodor Geisel, 2004). In 1938 Theodor Giesel displayed his "Unorthodox Taxidermy" creatures in bookshops around New York to promote his new Dr, Seuss book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street. At the time, many people wanted to buy the weird animal heads and Look magazine even did an article on them. Over six decades later the estate of Dr. Seuss released a series of limited edition reproductions to collectors. Presented here is one of them called "Andulovian Grackler". This magnificent hand-finished cast resin sculpture mounted on a wood plaque measures 19.5" x 6.5" x 13.75". It is hand-numbered 394/850 and has been sold out for nearly two decades. This is one of the hardest to find editions from the taxidermy series and the first we've ever offered. The piece shows minor handling and scratches on the wall-facing side of the plaque. Note: this lot contains one sculpture. Condition is Very Good.
