Bronze sculpture from the 1980s, height 70 cm, by Nuccio Fontanella (1936-2005).
It is signed on back, and underneath the marble base is an inscription ‘Metamorfosi di testa’ (I don’t know if written by the artist).
It’s in good condition. It just has undergone a small restoration work between the branch and the leaf on the right side (please see second picture), and a small chipping on the marble base.
Authentic item with lawful origin (it was purchased at the time in a lawful sale in Rome). It has documents for export of contemporary works of art, filed at the Soprintendenza Belle Arti e Paesaggio delle Marche di Ancona, with no. 2635 - class. 35.28.01 - folder no. 1 - (please see photographic documentation filed, with relevant stamp by the Superintendence).
Pickup on site is preferred and recommended. Buyer bears the entire responsibility for any shipment (if requested and upon prior agreement), without any liability accepted by the seller for any damage caused during transport.
