The bronze sculpture "Happily Ever After" is meant to openly pose the question “When it is enough yet enough?” in a time of not-necessary overconsumption on all fronts: social media, fame, food, money.
The sculpture depicts a fat crocodile as the top of the food-chain predator, that has eaten so much that his feet cannot even touch the ground. He lost all sense of being grounded and, while the feast, here referred to by the party hat and whistle, goes on, one can ask the question: "now that he has everything he wanted, is he truly happy?"
We are a society that is obsessed with priorate abundance and extravagance. How inconceivable is it that someone who has attained so much success and wealth feels compelled to ruin himself in a vainglorious attempt to have yet more?
Joseph Klibansky wants the viewer to have a moment of self reflection about his daily life and personal expectations of happiness.
