Angelo Canevari
Assyrian King - Resin and Metal Surrealist Bust Sculpture of a King

2002

$14,800

About

Angelo Canevari’s Assyrian King is a 25 x 14 inch mix media surrealist sculpture. It is made of metal, resin, automotive paint, and cardboard. It is a surrealist interpretation of a bust of an Assyrian King. The use of metal and wires to develop a tridimensional sculptural quality, as well as the expressionistic outcome of the imagery, has echoes in some contemporary African sculpture. The swirling green strip creates a flowing tridimensionality that plays the empty space around. The outcome is a lively and dynamic figure that keep changing in the eyes of the viewer. Angelo Canevari is an Italian sculptor who comes from a long lineage of artists active in Rome since the 17th century. He has been commissioned several works by the Vatican including the Bronze Doors of the Cathedral of Belluno and the Vatican Coins. This sculpture is part of a very limited number of works that the artist created at the end of his life. It has been featured in a book written by renowned writer Andrea Camilleri.
