Dumplings with duck from Cotan

Dumplings met eend van Cotan - Lyklema Fine Art

This still life has been carefully composed and all 'items' lie or hang exactly above an edge. Everything is lifelike, almost tangible and therefore very believable. The duck attracts attention because it appears to be hanging in front of the box. The painting hangs in the Art Institute in Chicago and was created by Cotan who was born in the La Mascha province of Spain. It inspired us to make a duck dumpling.
