De Chirico and three-dimensional Archaeologists

Giorgio de Chirico created a series of sculptures representing Archaeologists in the late 1960s. Here is one in bronze alloy with a dark patina (170x120x120 cm), cast in 2008 from an original that the artist made in 1968.

The sculpture is now at the Open Air “Bilotti” Museum (Museo all’Aperto Bilotti, Mab) in Cosenza, Calabria.
