The Fabien Merelle Pentateuque sculpture depicts a sweaty man as he balances a ginormous elephant on his back. This follows up on Merelle's interest in the ethereal, specifically regarding dreams and alternative states of mind, "Following the unrolling of a dream, playing with the free association of shapes and ideas, he seems to say that everything is transforming..."

Pentateuque stands small at 30 x 27 x 12 inches. The piece incorporates an assortment of resin, paint and hair, enabling him to capture the true qualities of both man and animal. Its life like qualities were observed at Marina Bay Sands' 2013 Art Stage Singapore show, a prestigious exhibit that came of his original Pentateuch ink drawing that was released in 2010.
