SAVAGE is a bronze bust of a man with a crocodile costume. In many Native American tribes, crocodiles are symbols of status, power and wisdom.
This piece is part of a special collection Francesca Dalla Benetta started in 2018, called Customs and Identities, and it is a reflection about how many costumes we wear in front of people, the society, family and so on. We have roles that are different for each person we meet in life, so we try to adapt and respond to that particular role. Sometime we align, sometimes we react. That’s how we build our personality.
This piece has a black and green patina, the classical bronze colors. The black patina is made from the green one, after the burning process, so magical and mystical.
This sculpture is a series of 6 pieces.
The size includes the base.
