ORIGAMI is a bronze sculpture of a child playing with paper and scissors: he made himself a paper hat. He has a tender and naughty expression on his face, as the children have when they did something they shouldn’t have done: the hand that hides a scissor and the look in the eyes of the boy makes you wonder that he is plotting something.
Francesca loves to work with children portraits, because of their innocence and their capacity of wonder. It is part of a project called Los Niños y Sus Amigos Imaginarios (The children and their imaginary friends). It is a special tribute to children’s nature, to their capacity to see through this reality, to maintain the innocence, to have faith in the impossible, to always have hope, to be spontaneous, to be authentic. In this sculpture, the little boy is playing with simple object, but on his mind he is creating wonderful adventures.
This piece has a black patina with golden details, polished to reveal the natural bronze color.
The gems of the crown are polished with a special garnish to mega their shine. This piece is a unique bronze sculpture, one of a kind.
The size includes the base.
