A new Flower for Ana Tzarev


After the realization of the three replicas of the sculptureBird of Paradise” cast in bronze and painted in the colors and in the type of painting required, the Sculptor Ana Tzarev asked the Foundry Ferdinando Marinelli for the creation in bronze of another sculpture of the flower series, a giant poppy simply called “Poppy”.

It is a very complex job. One of the problems is the need to make Ana’s sculptures divisible into several parts to make shipping easier. And if for the “Birds of Paradise” it was complicated to be able to make disassembly and reassembly possible in several parts, for the “Poppy” the thing is very complicated given the complexity of the work, the dimensions, the weight and since it is painted on fire.

We are now at the stage of assembling all the parts of the huge flower.
