Serie of 6 numbered pieces
Bronze 2020

La tuffatrice (the diver in Italian) is a bronze sculpture of a winged woman and big flower hair ready to dive.
She has closed eyes and a serene smile on her face because she knows she cannot control everything in her life and she simply has faith in her power and that the universe has her back. It’s not blind faith, it’s the knowing that, being herself, she’ll have a wonderful life of growing and happiness.
The model in this piece is one of the artist’s dearest friends, an exceptional woman who inspires Francesca to be more of herself on a daily basis.
This sculpture has a black and green patina with golden details, polished to reveal the natural bronze color. The black patina is made from the green one, after a burning process, so magical and mystical.
Please remember that this piece is part of a serie of 6, and the patina (colors) can vary a little from piece to piece (I always try to make them the most similar, but part of the beauty of patinas is exactly their uniqueness).
