Head carved on a separate piece on pole fitting, figure standing on 19th century stoneware base with grape & vine motifs. Statue: H 86 cm, base: H 47 cm. Note: Lazzerini was a celebrated Carrarese sculptor. He joined the Accademia di Belle Arti in 1848, during which time he was taught by Ferdinando Pelliccia. In 1853, after winning a scholarship for his marble relief of Patroclus Slaying Sarpedon, he moved to Rome and studied under Pietrò Tenerani. Lazzerini returned to Carrara shortly after 1859 to work in his family's studio in the Corso Rosselli which later he took control of, after the death of his half-brother, Alessandro, in 1862. After a distinguished career, the Carrara Academy appointed him as the Director from 1889 to 1893 and then an Honarary Professor in 1894.
