Bronze Puzzle Bust by Miguel Berrocal
Titled Omaggio Ad Arcimboldo. Incredible ingenuity is the only phrase that can do any justice to this astonishing work by Berrocal. As the title indicates this is a true homage to the renaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who created exquisite pre-surrealist portraits, composed of fruits and vegetables in a still life style. A group of 30 precisely engineered components, each lovingly detailed, are stacked atop a central shaft to create the features and overall form of the bust. A remarkable feat of artistic engineering,with an unimaginable depth of detail applied to sections not even visible when assembled. A true accomplishment on all levels. Numbered 478 from the edition of 1000. 11.5" H 6" W 7" D.
