Grande Cavallo by Nag Arnoldi
The expressive bronzes of Nag Arnoldi show influences of Marino Marini and Pablo Picasso, as well as of pre-Columbian art.
Arnoldi's works have a clear identity. The unique character of the structure of the broken cast area strongly contrasts with that of the partially polished surfaces. Light, reflection and material dissolution play a very significant role. The theme is the myth of the horse and the human, depicted between joy and pain.
