Reading Love Poetry


This sculpture is from the theme of mythological Kings and Queens, the rulers from history and fantasy alike. Often they portray the funny or humorous aspects of these characters with so much power and responsibility. Other times the meaning is deeper and more to the point with sculptures such as the two Kings who are playing chess with countries. On other occasions however, the idea is much more romantic and beautiful showing the gentler side of these powerful characters. This is what makes us so fascinated by the Kings and Queens from past and present. We want to know about the hidden aspects - the love, longing for romance and secret fascinations. In the end we may find that they are also just like us, with human qualities. Or are we like them? Perhaps we are the Kings and Queens of our own lives... 

All the artworks sold on are made by artist Tauno Kangro. Most artworks are either unique pieces or part of a limited collection run. Some of these artworks may be sold at the same time in the Art Gallery in Tallinn, Uus 20, Tallinn, Estonia, 10111. Due to the nature of the business, we cannot guarantee that all the artworks on the website are always available to purchase. However, we will always let customers know if the artwork is not available before collecting their payment. In that case we may be able to offer alternative options to choose from:

  • An alternative artwork, or a selection of artworks which the artist believes are similar to the original work in terms of price, size, style and/or theme.
  • An option to order a custom made artwork. Please note that the process to create an original custom artwork may take several months.
  • In some cases the artist is able to create a new limited edition artwork based on the original or create a new unique artwork inspired by the original piece. In either case, we will email the customer with detailed information regarding the possibilities.

We will never collect any payment without checking the availability of the artwork first.
