READY TO FLY is a bronze sculpture of a woman with a bird mask or hat.
The bird mask is a symbol of freedom and of the capacity and willing to fly, to grow and to find ourselves in reaching our goals.
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 with golden details, polished to reveal the natural bronze color. The black patina is made from the green one, after the burning process, so magical and mystical.
This sculpture is a unique bronze, one of a kind.
