I’m not sure if you could find a better setting for collection of these pieces by Costa Rican sculptor Jimenez Deredia. I finally made the time to spend some time at the Colosseum a few weeks ago, and the timing couldn’t have been better.
Above is Recuerdo Profundo, below a closer view. Chocolaty, no?
Deredia a Roma – La Ruta de la Paz opened on June 22, there through November.
From Deredia’s website:
This occasion will also be used to introduce “La Ruta de la Paz”, a project conceived by Jiménez Deredia that includes the realization of nine sculptural complexes which be placed in nine countries of the American continent: a symbolic red thread will be unrevealed from Canada to Tierra del Fuego going through the United States of America, Mexico, Yucatan, Costa Rica, Colombia, Peru and Chile representing a link between populations and legends, myths and traditions.
