Beautiful bas-relief depicting the Dragon of St. Todaro, coming from a villa in Venice
The artwork draws the dragon from the sculpture upon the column in St. Mark’s Square. The columns are two, depicting the saints of Venice: one shows St. Mark in the form of a winged lion, the other St. Todaro protecting the city.
This very dragon was killed by St. Todaro; the fight between the Saint and the monster is a widespread allegory in the mythical imagination of the Serenissima.
The dragon is represented with great skill and precise and defined details. The monster anatomy is excellent. The bas-relief has an extraordinary patina, the grain of the marble is truly delicious.
Medium-sized, well proportioned and not too heavy.
Ideal piece to hang on the wall, possibly with metal hooks. It can be placed outdoors as well as indoors.
An exclusive artwork, one of a kind.
In very good overall condition, intact.
It will be delivered in a wooden crate with proper packaging.
