Exquisite sculpture representing a new interpretation of Michelangelo’s Prisoners (prigioni), "The Awakening Slave"
Michelangelo’s “prigioni” are colossal sculptures intended as decorations for the Pope Julius II tomb. The fame of these statues is due above all to their “unfinished” state, as to represent the eternal struggle of human beings to free themselves from their material trappings.
Sculpture in Roman travertine by artist Stefano Todini.
Work of remarkable sculptural quality, unique piece.
Roman travertine is extracted in the Tivoli area; it is the same material used to build the Colosseum.
The artist’s signature is visible in photos.
