Drawing - Graphite On Paper
(Original drawing: 2010, graphite on paper, 13 x 15, Sold)
In 1600 Flaminio Vacca carved this marble lion for the Grand Duke of Tuscany to match an ancient Roman lion statue; both were placed at the Villa Medici in Rome, Italy. When the Grand Duke sold the Villa, both lion statues were brought to the Loggia dei Lanzi at the Piazza della Signoria in Florence.
Perseus, holding the head of the Medusa is a bronze masterpiece by Benvenuto Cellini, placed in the Loggia in 1554. The marble base, a Cellini/Francesco del Tadda collaboration, has been removed to the Bargello Museum and a copy placed in the Loggia.
