    Fabulous French mid-century life-sized concrete crocodile. A piece of naive sculptural art from the French art brut movement - art brut translating to 'raw art' and also known as outsider art - it is in the style of prominent art brut sculptor André Hardy. 

    This beautiful brute has been sculpted out of reinforced concrete, using mosaic pieces for teeth and eyes, with great texture. The paint has worn wonderfully over the years. It would make a magnificent addition to any design-led home, space or garden.
