Description
Studio Todini - Sculpture, Bust of Hippocrates - 57 cm - Marble - Second half 20th century
Italy

Hippocrates bust in Carrara marble, placed on Calacatta red marble.
Classic style sculpture, finished down to the smallest details.

Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician, geographer and aphorist from 460 b.C., who is considered the "Father of Medicine". He wrote the famous “Oath”, defining the requirements to be admitted to his school and practice the medical art. The Hippocratic Oath has been historically taken by physicians when they graduate from medical school.

This sculpture is part of an array of museum-like look works created at Todini’s studio, which the Lazio Region designated in 2011 as a workshop “of high aesthetic and cultural value”, granting the use of the origin and quality mark.
In 2015 the Osservatorio dei Mestieri d’Arte in Florence (OMA) included them in the list of excellence of Italian trades.
