UOMO LUPO is a bronze sculpture of a man with a wolf mask or hat.
The title means Wolf Man. The wolf is a symbol of courage and bravery, guardianship, and loyalty. A wolf is strong in its instincts, does not waver and knows who it can trust. They teach us to trust in our hearts and minds and to be in control of our own destiny.
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, the classical bronze colors.
The black patina is made from the green one, after the burning process, so magical and mystical.
This sculpture is series of 6 pieces. The size includes the base. As the piece is available on request, allow 3-4 weeks to be shipped.
