Strength and Fragility

The statue, Tindaro Screpolato, was created by the artist Igor Mitoraj. It is located at the Boboli Garden in Florence, Italy. The stature is of bronze and features a cracked disembodied face that represents strength and fragility. In the black and white alteration of this image, the lush green background is transformed into a dark, almost smoke like backdrop. This allows the face to stand out more from the nature that surrounds him.
