About the Middle Finger Gnome - Silver

This surprising statue features a typical garden gnome in an unconventional shape. Indeed, the gnome makes the middle finger gesture with his right hand while smiling and having his left hand in the pocket. Hörl gave the garden gnome a sense of rebel personality as he smiles when raising his middle finger. Sculptor edited the F-word gnome in blue first for "Rolling Change" installation in Seligenstadt (1994), Germany. Now the swearing gnome exists in a range of shiny colors. This emblematic gnome comes with Artist signature engraved at the bottom at the back of its left foot. Our gnome art sculpture is a toxic-free, weatherproof, break-proof plastic. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.  More details on Ottmar Hörl - Middle Finger Gnome (1994/2006) - Silver:

Ottmar Hörl was born in 1950 in Nauheim, Germany. He is a notable German artist, art professor, and writer. Not only Hörl studied at the Städelschule in Frankfurt (1975 / 1978), but also at the Academy of Fine Arts in Düsseldorf (1978 / 1981). In 1985 he co-founded the group Fomalhaut, with architects Gabriela Seifert and Götz Stöckmann. In 1999, Hörl became Professor of Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg. Eventually, he has been president of the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg since 2005. A mischievous artist, Hörl’s career has been predominantly about creating public commentary. He used his whimsical sculptures that have a friendly and teasing tone, especially with his gnomes. His work Flying Change staged in Selignstadt in 1994, for instance, placed a thousand blue garden gnomes, smiling and brandishing their middle fingers, all around the city. The intended effect was for the public to take them and move them around, which the townspeople gratefully did. Add a touch of “trendy activism” in your home or garden decor with Hörl’s gnome statues. They are suitable for inside and out and are all engraved with Sculptor signature as part as a Special Edition Collection.
