A magnificent gogotte from Fontainebleau, France, finely modelled by the movement of silica-rich water through loose sand.
Each gogotte is unique - an extraordinary natural masterpiece. The arresting, undulating forms of gogottes have fascinated their beholders for centuries, from King Louis XIV who kept them in his garden at Versailles, to the sculptor Henry Moore who owned an example. This twisting mass of sparkling grey-white sandstone draws its nickname “Coucou” (“Peek-a-book”) from the two large eye-shaped circles at its centre, seemingly peering out from the surrounding stone.
Height: 28 inches (71.1 cm)
Width: 31 inches (78.7 cm)
Discovered in the sand dunes of Fontainebleau, 1989-1994.
