Queen belongs to a substantial series of animalistic works by Namdakov and additionally highlights his ability to see both the generic and the individual in nature.
In his desire to render the dynamic body of a predator with its deeply expressive movements, the sculptor forsakes naturalistic devices and creates his own version of reality.
Queen is a celebration of the beauty of motherhood. The black panther is a symbol of the ultimate degree of fierce determination in a mother protecting her offspring. The graceful motion of the feline body masks the warning visible in the panther’s strong muscles and extended claws.
