Beautiful bronze and wood sculpture designed in 1996, fine Italian manufacture. SIGNED.
The base is made of lacquered black wood. This form serves as a pedestal for the actual sculpture.
The main body is represented by an entirely nude bronze woman, kneeling.
The woman is seated on a rock, on which the artist’s signature is carved.
The woman is represented in a contorted position: in fact, she is seated with one knee on the ground, while her entire weight pivots on the other. With one arm she touches the ground to keep her balance while with the other she touches her head, as if she wanted to be photographed. The woman is completely naked and we can see this from her obvious breasts, but her bottom is also visible.
The woman seems to represent a person who wants to be looked at, proudly showing herself in her nudity. A hymn to female nudity and to the beauty and harmony of the body.
The sculpture is very beautiful and suitable for decorating classy areas.
Biagio Romeo is a sculptor from Ragusa and has a permanent, personal exhibition dedicated to him.
The artist was born in Comiso in 1926, a pupil of another great master, Biagio Lucenti. He specialized in the art of moulding and shapes in Rome, but it was Milan that opened its doors to him. But he certainly never forgot his birthplace; in fact, in 1978 he won ”David D’oro” in Taormina. In Comiso he has a permanent exhibition of his creations.
