Enter a dream world with the exhibition The Bone Magician - Sculptures of Quentin Garel, at the National Museum of Natural History

Some of the works of Quentin Garel are so realistic that you need to examine them very closely indeed to find any details to betray the fact that they are, indeed, sculptures. The Paris-based artist fashions bones, animals and fossils out of wood, bronze and cast iron, bringing delicacy and detail to the textures, even as he inflates the size of the original. The skull of a cat weighing 80 kilograms and a pink flamingo skull measuring about 4 metres in length provoke astonishment in the Comparative Anatomy and Palaeontology Galleries, and a colossal vertebra rising out of the ground in a corner of the Jardin des Plantes delights. A contemporary take on the classic animal sculpture, the exhibition reveals itself as a new experience, allowing us to look afresh at the intricate and often strange, yet beautiful, whims of nature. The effect is stunning!
