THE YOUNG SLAVE

30,00

Reproduction of one of the famous Slaves, or Prigioni, by Michelangelo Buonarroti.
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 Young Slave dates from the 1620s. It is perhaps the best-defined sculpture in the series, with the legs and front of the torso well sculpted. The young man portrayed seems to be under great strain, his left arm covering his face and his right thrown behind his body. Like the other Slaves –Bearded Slave, Awakening Slave and Bound 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.
