The Collective Invention / l'Invention collective was a Surrealist painting completed by Rene Magritte (1935, oil on canvas 73 x 166 cm). This clever artwork is an adaptation of the painting into a statue. It shows a woman's body laying down with a fish as the upper portion of her body. The combination of the human and fish forms is a physical impossibility, only possible in a dream. Surrealism was a 20th century art movement which mixed improbably dreamlike images as a way to challenge a viewer's understanding of the natural world.

Magritte describes this work as follows: Collective Invention is the answer to the problem of the sea. On the beach I laid a siren, the top part of whose body is that of a fish, while the bottom part consists of the belly and legs of a woman.

Collective Invention Female Fish Statue is part of the Parastone Museum Collection of collectible figurines.

Sold Out. Won't be getting any more in for the forseeable future. Getting hard to find but are really beautiful.
