ASTUZIA is a resin bust of a woman with a wolf mask or hat and flowers. One of the most recognizable characteristics of the wolf is being smart.
This piece is a tribute to the smart and intelligent woman in the world. The kind of woman who is strong and know what she wants and how to get it, but also, a kind and loving woman, who knows love and self love.
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.
