I finished the “Diaposaurus”, the creative equivalent of walking the Way of Saint James, in 1998. This multipurpose cabinet of curiosities recounts the legend of the Burgundian dragon known as La Vouivre. Made with fossils I found as a child in the vineyards of the Chalon winegrowing region, and wood I acquired here and there as an adult, this complex and refined piece transcends life on earth. It includes 16 varieties of local and exotic wood, forged steel rods with several different patinas, resin and fiberglass light fixtures, and many fossils, pebbles, sand and glass marbles that make up the cornucopia mosaic.
