1950s acrylic black and white squirrel by Brazilian artist Abraham Palatnik. An op art design with kinetic black lines which give the optical illusion that the squirrel is always looking at you whichever direction it faces.
This vintage item is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks and marks on the base. Palatnik designed a large collection of animal sculptures which he created using the same technique.
The 'Made in Brazil' label which is usually on the base is missing but there are remains of its white sticky back.
