About The Artwork

JAGUAR is a bronze bronce of a man with a jaguar mask or hat. The jaguar occupied a place of supreme importance in pre-Hispanic Mexican culture, being a symbol of profound significance in several indigenous civilizations that inhabited the territory (Maya, Aztecs, Olmecs, etc.). Its relevance extended throughout religious, social and spiritual aspects, establishing an intimate connection between the animal and the beliefs of these cultures. Some of the main attributes associated with it are: power and strength, spirituality and connection with the divine, symbol of night and darkness (duality and cycles of life and death), protection and spiritual guidance, etc. This piece is part of a special collection Francesca Dalla Benetta started in 2018, called Customs and Identities, and it is a reflection about how many costumes we wear in front of people, the society, family and so on. We have roles that are different for each person we meet in life, so we try to adapt and respond to that particular role. Sometime we align, sometimes we react. That is how we build our personality. Please remember that this piece is part of a series of 8, and the patina (colors) may vary a little from piece to piece (I always try to make them the most similar, but part of the patina's beauty is exactly their uniqueness). The size includes the base.

STATEMENT: Francesca Dalla Benetta's work is characterized by mixed anatomies and forms. Human faces and bodies are combined with different textures, skins and elements, giving rise to hybrid beings. Through her aesthetics, in balance between the classic and the surreal, the artist studies the themes of transformation, sense of belonging and self-perception, the ability to adapt, stereotypes and categorization. She searches for the fine line that separates personal identity from social conventions, sanity from madness, studying the differences between perception and reality. Francesca's figures are a look inward and out of control, they are a way of containing the uncontainable. The stories of each character, isolated in an intimate and unreal dimension, are reflections on the identity of misfits and the many facets of being. As an artist, her most important task is to communicate and stimulate a different way of feeling and thinking. She mainly resorts to sculpture because it is a lasting solidity in contrast to the volatility of though BIOGRAPHY I was born in Florence, Italy, in a hot summer day. My childhood was filled with a grandmother that takes me around all the museums of the city and tells me all the wonderful stories of the life of great Renaissance artists. And when I’m not with grandma, I spent long afternoons drawing, painting or making small sculptures. I was told that at the age of 4 years I made a series of portraits so impressively resembling to my entire family, that everybody pictured me as a future great famous artist. Years later, when choosing high school, art school seems the most natural thing. Unfortunately mom and dad do not agree. What kind of a job is to be an artist? You don’t want to starve doing portraits in the church square! Then, having no choice, I attended five years of Science High School, followed by the University, the Faculty of Physics. I’ve got the best grades but I’m not happy at all. Unexpectedly in the mid of my studies and against the wishes of the parents, I decide out of the blue to leave the university to try to enter the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, the secular Brera. The summer of 1999 begins my biggest and most challenging dream: studying art. So excited! After four years, I graduated.
