A beautiful bronze sculpture by Italian artist Pietro Cascella, (February 2, 1921-May 18, 2008). Cascella used various materials- ceramic, bronze, cement, sand and wire netting, in the 1950s he created a number of small, tactile reliefs, sometimes adorned with surreal, biomorphic forms inspired by his friend, the Chilean artist Roberto Matta. "As well as being theatrical, much of his art has a ritualistic quality. For open-air settings, he made strange, walled structures that look like Prehistoric sanctuaries, while smaller carvings, in travertine rock, represented archetypal forms: cosmic bodies, germinating seeds, even women in childbirth. Their simplified, geometric shapes are reminiscent of the abstract sculptor Constantin Brancusi, while also looking distinctly archaic." Former collection of Ruth Ford. Signed twice.
