This collection of trays revisits in an offbeat and humorous way the portraits of ancestors, painted in the great classical tradition of the 18th and 19th centuries. Ibride offers a new portrait gallery on the theme of La Fontaine's Fables. They have been rooted for such a long time in our memory. The cruelty of the wolf faced with the innocence of the lamb, the cunning of the fox who fools the raven by flattery, the monkey and the cat who appear united in their misdeeds and reveal themselves as real false friends... These new portraits are inspired by the court of the Palace of Versailles, where, in the shadow of the king an elegant and sophisticated fauna move: characters with limitless ambitions... Six tray-paintings which, via their humanity, reveal our own paradoxes. These trays can be used for service or be displayed on the wall as paintings. The designer, Rachel Convers explains: "These animals don't say "look at me", rather "look at you".
