This work was created by master craftsman, Marco Giusti. Thanks to his advanced knowledge in shaping leather, he gives us this leather wall art which has as its subject, "western horses", or Appaloosa horses as defined by the artist himself. Reminiscent of Renaissance relief sculpture, the form of the body and the mane of these horses project slightly from the background surface. The mane is visually enchanting with the thin strips of leather that have been hand cut and placed one by one depicting a wonderful detail of movement.
The frame is entirely made of leather created using 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 relief sculpture has been molded with a gouge and a cobbler's knife on natural leather of 3 mm thickness. In the background of the picture is a Bucolic landscape painted in oil on wood. Signed and dated 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.
