My #inktober 7th drawing is from a photo I took of a seaside sculpture in Portovenere, Italy.
This wonderful bronze (I think) sculpture is positioned, sitting on a natural rock bench, looking out over the Mediterranean Sea, and I thought it represented the local women waiting for their family fishermen to return home. If there was a plaque explaining it, I missed it. Only after I decided to post this drawing did I do the research and found out:
- It’s entitled “Mater Natura” or Mother Nature.
- It was made by Lello Scorzelli, the sculptor that made that phenomenal papal cross that Pope John Paul II made famous and is now carried by Pope Francis. I couldn’t find out the date he made this sculpture… anyone out there know?
