About The Artwork

In ancient Greece, young people celebrated the transition from puberty to adulthood with a dance, they had to jump a large bull by taking it by the horns. By observing the work who has really jumped who has had the courage to face all their fears and frailties to start a new phase of life? I watch my teenage son run away and hurt himself rather than jump, the material the bull is made of seems to melt with the passing of time, but it always invites him to grow like its branches, in any direction he wants, just look at that fear in the eyes.

Antonietta De Marchi studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and RUFA (Rome University on Fine Art). After his academic studies, the artist decides to undertake and trace the artistic experiences of the Renaissance masters, studying as a goldsmith. The Office of the Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff has commissioned numerous works of art, and in particular: - the design and realization of three monumental metal amphorae, containing the holy oils and used annually by the Pontiff during the rites of Holy Week; - the design and realization of the Piscatorio Ring of Pope Francis, realized by direct commission of the Holy See and now museum in the Treasury of the Pontifical Sacristy in the Vatican. Recently, the artist, freely experiments the use of new sustainable materials for sculpture, recounting through his works the atavistic symbols of our culture, the memory, and the delicate bond that binds man to nature and the spirituality that belongs to him.
