Bronze sculpture details
Bucci's female figure, deeply rooted in art history in Christian depictions of the Virgin Mary, shows a modern female figure whose visible heart protrudes from her cloak-like body. A symbol of love, protection and care.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand. Limited to 49 numbered and signed copies.
Andrea Bucci is an architecture graduate and worked as such for a number of years. He taught himself the art of sculpture ‑ albeit one who was familiar with artistic work of all kinds from childhood, since Bucci is the son of an artist and spent uncounted hours in his father's studio as a child.
