This portrait takes inspiration from Mediterranean pine woods deprived of life by the forces of nature, mysteries of history and deforming potential of time. Created using different types of natural clay and finished with glossy or copper-effect glazes. The pale white of the girl figure contrasts with the blood red and the black background lined with black brocade typically used in traditional Sardinian costumes. When hung, the frame results slightly slanted with one corner purposely out highlighting its shabby look.
A tiny nail can be used to hang the sculpture thanks to the apposite hole on the back side, right behind the ceramic "spike" stabbing the girl's head.
Dimensions: 14,5 cm x 11,5 cm (5,7" x 4,5")
