This sculpture offers a modern take on one of the best-known classic masks of the Italian Commedia dell’Arte (comedy of profession): Arlecchino.
Harlequin’s traditional colorful chequered costume is rendered here with multicolored burattini, though keeping his characteristic black hat and mask. Freezed in the act, Harlequin the trickster is slightly humpbacked, hiding his wooden sword behind and waiting for the right time to make his move and hit. On black base.
Completely hand-made Murano glass.
Height: 90 cm (35.4″)
