This leather artwork 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, Ribot- one of the great top-rated Thoroughbred racehorses of all time. British bred, Italian trained and foiled in 1952, Ribot was undefeated in sixteen races.
The artist's passion for the equestrian world has followed him in his passion for leather sculpting. Reminiscent of Renaissance relief sculpture, the form of the horse's head and the mane project slightly from the background surface.
The folds of the leather on the frame is done 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 and wax on leather. 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.
