    Stefan Rinck was born in 1973 in Hamburg, he lives and works in Berlin, Germany. His Crocodiles originate from a far deep geological strata as well as ancient myths. They are carved from Permian volcanic rock, dating from a period that witnessed the birth of the crocodile species. A fascinating yet fearsome creature, the crocodile has been the subject of many legends, bringing to mind Crocodilopolis, an ancient Egyptian city, whose residents worshipped the crocodile-headed god Sobek, or the cruel Roman emperor Heliogabalus who raised a crocodile. Through this subject matter and its translation using primitive stone, Rinck weaves narratives with a multiple origins and suggests new narrative for the world and the far time on a geological scale.
