A symbol of Tuscan wildlife, the boar ("cinghiale" in Italian) is the subject of this lively portrait by Vincenzo Romanelli from 2012. Growing up in Tuscany, the artist studied this animal in its local habitat and this sculpture pays homage to his land and his childhood. The sculpture was modeled in clay and then cast in bronze in the Florentine foundry using the lost-wax casting technique. The standout element of this piece is its striking texture rendering the coat of the animal. This is part of a 12-piece limited series and is signed, numbered, and dated.
