As one of her first sculptures after a radical change in style in the early 1950s, Penalba’s bronze sculpture ‘Passion de la Jungle’ can be seen as a flower bud in spring, ready to blossom into all the organic shapes of her later work.

Penalba created several versions of this sculpture.
The largest version of this sculpture, 210 cm high and made of granite, is located in front of an apartment building in Vitry-sur-Seine, Paris
