SURFING BIRD was the first in the PERSONAGGI series. It came about after a good show in Florence where I sold some big sculptures, and then accidently bought 12 tons of Statuario Marble from the Cervaiole Quarry. Statuario asks to be carved, not cut and sanded, so I followed the call of the material. After carving the bird, it seemed so white that I had to add a bit of color. Once started, never ends.
