Bronze sculpture details
The dress, the ruff, the beard style – “El Greco” (1541-1614) himself. And at the same time wholly Bigi, whose imagination and use of forms stand out in unmistakable clarity.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Rinaldo Bigi was born in Pietrasanta, near the famous marble quarries of Carrara. So, one of the materials which he was to work with later on in his life was right at his feet when he was just a baby.
