UNICORNIO is a bronze sculpture of a woman with a unicorn mask or hat.
The unicorn mask is a symbol of strength, imagination, fantasies, dreams, illusions and above all, freedom.
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. ThatÕs how we build our personality.
This piece has a black 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.
