Bronze sculpture details
Simon sees the true beauty of a bullfight in the clash of the bull’s unruly power with the elegant body control of the torero. With the death of the bull, the artist is saying, it comes to an end that is as unnecessary as it is reprehensible.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Robert Simon could have been a musician. Before he became a sculptor, he studied music, but decided to perfect his sculpting talents which were clearly visible in his youth. In Austria - at the sculpture school Geisler-Moroder, he has been sharing his knowledge and experience as a lecturer with the next generation. At the same time, he completed an apprenticeship as a wood and stone sculptor.
