Oscar was designed with the characteristic joy and care in Hans Bolling's mind, and the little dog is a token of fun and playfulness. Oscar's body can be arranged so that he does everything a normal dog would. He can sit, scrawl, stand, beg or even sulk in the corner if you have been away from him for too long. He is, however, no ordinary dog.
The highly specified and elaborate details of Oscar's body add a sophisticated dimension to his form. Every angle, curve and bend has been craftily thought out over the span of a couple of years to convey a highly stylized, yet harmonious aesthetic object. Oscar is an elaborately designed dog with a flair for refined simplicity, which makes you look twice.
