Dwarf Parade Dogs

Dwarf Parade Dog (Lemon Nipples) is the first in a series and is a reference to Paul Thek’s Dwarf Parade Table (1969). Bosmans created a marble block on which he drew a fox with a permanent marker. Placed in the six recesses on the top of the marble block are lemons. The lemons turned out to be a misinterpretation, as Thek had used eggs. This realisation prompted further variations in which the nipples of Bosmans’ fox ranged from sugar cubes and eggs to plums.
