For its 60th birthday, the CitroŽn DS, as a 20th century design icon, deserved a sculpture.
It is on a Swiss art gallery initiative, in association with CitroŽn, that this work was ordered to Benoit de Clercq.
Sculptured, with in mind the clay original models of designer Flaminio Bertoni, DSí father, it is inspired, too, by the unwheeled models, which CitroŽn presented in shows or on its catalogues, at the end of the fifties, to evoke the streamlined, and almost aeronautical lines of this futuristic car.
This work is limited, worldwide, to only two hundred copies.
The original sculpture is kept in CitroŽn Heritage Museum.
It is the lone sculpture produced officially under CitroŽn licence.
Each copy, signed, and numbered, is made out of finely polished resin.
Itís close to one foot long, 30 cm, and weighs around 1.300 kilo.
The base is made out of polished aluminium and chrome plated brass.
A ball joint allows car inclination variation.
This sculpture is available in five colours: Light green, light blue, light grey, yellow and cream.
