Commissioned by the Bank of the Republic of Bogota to the sculptor Vico Consorti in the period of his stay in Colombia, the sculpture was executed only after his final repatriation in 1956, in the Rome studio, with the help of his faithful collaborator Roberto Petri. A series of photographs preserved by the heirs, documents the long design phase and execution of the figure, modeled first naked, then dressed with various types of draperies and iconographic attributes. Further evidence of the serious and prolonged application of Consorti on each subject requested to him.
