Forchino, The Barista

The Discobolus of Myron is an Ancient Greek sculpture completed at the start of the Classical period at around 460–450 BC. The sculpture depicts a youthful male athlete throwing a discus. The bronze Greek original is lost. The work is known through its numerous Roman copies, both full-scale ones in marble, which is cheaper than bronze, such as the first to be recovered, the Palombara Discobolus, and smaller scaled versions in bronze.

Samurai, those who serve. The samurai were the hereditary military nobility and officer caste of medieval and early-modern Japan from the late 12th century until their abolition in 1876. (WU71010, WU72582, WU72481 & WU71599 - h. 16,5 - 27 cm.)
Forme uniche della continuità nello spazio (1913).
Parastone has opted for a new bronze colour for this famous statue of Boccioni, of which several casts were made after his death. In his ‘Manifesto technico della scultura futuristica’ he advocated experimenting with the simultaneous use of different materials in dynamic forms, with a focus on the “abstract reconstruction and not the figurative, form-determining meaning of planes and volumes”. The bronze figure with the telling title ‘Unique forms of continuity in space’ reflects his approach to life, as a futurist, which was lively, dynamic and future-oriented. (BOC01 - h. 15 cm.)
