Madonna with Child


This sculpture is one of the first I performed. It 'a real relief to all the admirable features of this kind of art: a game of shadows and light that give rise to the delicate forms that change depending on the location and layout of the observer. Beyond the Renaissance frame, the layer affected is quite small and this makes the work risky for the possibility of unforeseen splinters. The piece of marble is recycled from other use (the counter of a butcher) in order to make more quiet work of the amateur in case of errors.

I have endeavored to make the modern work with Mother smiling and covered in jewelry, and the child that I answer the smile in even more evident. The official iconography them would rather sad and aware of the fate of pain and death. In this I was inspired by Desiderio da Settignano (place near Florence) and its Tabernacle of the Sacrament in the Basilica of San Lorenzo in Florence
