Handcrafted product made in Tuscany in patinated resin, with marble resin.
The statue is to be found inside the Galleria dell’Accademia.

Part of the Slaves series, Michelangelo’s famous unfinished works, the Bearded Slave dates from the 1620s. It is one of the best-defined subjects in the series, with a muscular, well-sculpted body, well-defined legs encircled by a sash and a face with a thick beard, from which it takes its name. Like the other Slaves – Bound Slave, Awakening Slave and Young Slave – it was intended to serve as decoration for the monumental tomb of Pope Julius II. According to some sources, these subjects represented the provinces subjected by the Pope, or the Arts, cast into slavery by the death of a great patron.
