LA MIA CASA is a bronze sculpture of a man with houses on his head, shoulder as a backpack and at his feet.
The title means “my home” . The artist wants to remind to herself that home is where he is, and that our body is our real home, and that she can be well everywhere. This is a very dear theme to Francesca since she is far away from home and sometimes she need to remember that she is not lost.
This piece is part of a special collection Francesca Dalla Benetta started in 2018, called Metáforas del Ser (metaphors of the being), 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 black patina is made from the green one, after the burning process, so magical and mystical.
This piece is a unique piece
