Red Heart in Steel & Bronze Sculpture-The Largest Heart of the World by F.Crespo

About the Item

The sculptor Fernando Crespo has chosen Fatima, in the Centenary of the Apparitions and on the occasion of the visit of the illustrious pilgrim Pope Francis, to leave this art work of aesthetic beauty and profound significance in the city of Peace. It is a symbol of multicultural dialogue, tolerance, peace and the care of Our Lady for all men. Francisco the Greatest Heart of the World. The Heart is Life and Civilization! This sculpture uses the Heart as a universal icon dividing it into two segments. The author wanted to remind Humanity, just as Pope Francis did that the heart supports Life and Faith. The left side of the heart represents religion and its dissemination as opposed to the fleeting side of life. This is the side that is exposed to light and pointing in the direction of the Infinite. On the opposite side, the right side is the fleeting side of life. A human figure walks toward the earth. This walk is made by the shadow and inevitably leads to the end. This is the Universal reality that the author wanted to expose to the World through a visual expression that arouses diverse reactions in the observers. Often they do not contain their emotions and are flattened by the dimension of the sculpture and its message. This sculpture was blessed and served as reception to His Holiness Pope Francisco for the 100th anniversary of Fatima.

The sculpture Francisco the Greatest Heart of the World is now available for sale or transfer of exploitation of commercial rights. It is visited by 6 million tourists a year. "Fernando Crespo has great human and aesthetic sensibility. It is a visionary of great importance that will have an ascending future recognition. I have no doubt about that because he is brave in an artistic sense and is outside of his intellectual circles in which most of the talented artists take refuge. And with this I mean that the talent in it is a starting point in that most artists talent is a point of arrival." Jordi Picazo - philologist and journalist.
