Bronze Prostitute


Here is another Miguel Berrocal sculpture I found in a New York showroom. I just love his work. This one is called "La Totoche," Bronze puzzle sculpture of a nude female body on rectangular base. La Totoche is composed of 13 bronze elements and can be converted from standing mode to reclining mode by means of a button on the base. The sculpture is Berrocal's homage to Italian film maker Federico Fellini. The female nude represents the prostitute in the Fellini's movie, Amarcord. Signed and numbered, by Miguel Berrocal, Spanish, 1960's.

Beautiful and interesting, although Fellini was a strange guy for sure, brilliant but strange. I'd love to see what it looks like in recline mode.

Loved the portrait on We'll See, hysterical. Still can't log on to comment, I'm just that challenged.
