Vintage Brass Cross for Galleria Sestante by Arnaldo Pomodoro and Giò Pomodoro1534
Stunning brass cross designed by Arnaldo Pomodoro and his brother Giò Pomodoro in the 1950s, of fine Italian manufacture. It is part of the V/58/16 model. The cross is made entirely of brass, of superhuman beauty. The cross has a fairly classical structure, with the two bands meeting to form a cross. Centrally there is a brass square, decorated exactly like the rest of the cross. The square is carved so that it appears to be entirely part of the cross. The corners are quite rounded. At the top we find an element, also made of brass, for storing the cross on the wall. The workmanship is done in very gentle and beautiful squiggles, with the application of small, but very impressive, brass finials. The cross is ideal as wall decoration, for true collectors.
