WHALE (ON LAKE JARUN)
This is one of the most successful artworks I’ve ever done. Every day, children spend time jumping, climbing or sliding on it. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that children adore your work. The sculpture was actually commissioned by the disco club Aquarius and I remember that its owner Ms Ana ripped me off when it came to the payment. Recently, the sculpture has been moved closer to the lake without my approval. On the whole, this was still a great job. My friends Petar Šalić and Sven Klobučar helped me make it. Plastic manufacturer Boško Popara, who builds small boats, and his workers were in charge of the polyester work. The sculpture is three and a half meters wide and was created in 1999.
