This work was created by master craftsman and Florentine artist, Marco Giusti. Thanks to his advanced knowledge in shaping leather, he gives us this splendid leather wall art sculpture which has as its subject, Arthur and the Tramontane - the Northern Wind - evident of the artist's love of horses. Reminiscent of Renaissance relief sculpture, the form of the body and the mane of this horse project slightly from the background surface. The mane and tail are visually enchanting where thin strips of leather are hand cut and placed one by one depicting a wonderful detail of movement in the Tramontane wind.
The waves of the frame are created with leather molding, also called wet forming process, a procedure in which the leather is soaked to make it pliable and easy to shape and thus, mold into a variety of forms. The sculpture has been molded with a gouge and a cobbler's knife on natural leather of 3 mm thickness. The background of the picture is painted in oil on wood. Signed by artist.
The Florentine artisan, Marco Giusti, has exhibited his works in numerous art galleries in Milan and Florence, among which Palazzo Corsini and the Stazione Leopolda are to mention, and still represents excellence in the field of leather sculpture.
