Diego Giacometti

Diego Giacometti (1902-1985) was a Swiss sculptor and designer whose work was often comprised of creatures like owl, horse, mouse, elephant from the animal kingdom that symbolized power, wisdom and beauty. He crafted his sculptures and whimsical furniture pieces using materials like bronze and solid iron, and used lost wax technique to achieve immaculate  detailing in his work. His artwork is available at auctions and galleries worldwide.

Omg, these are gorgeous! I've never came across him so thank you so much for sharing.

I'd love to own one of these delightful small tables.
