BEAUTY: Sculpture--Gino De Dominicis
The late Italian artist Gino De Dominicis was famous for putting long pointed noses on his figurative pieces. This shockingly monumental sculpture, an accurate replica of a human skeleton, with the De Dominicis signature nose of course, was created in 1990, eight years before his death. Puzzlingly titled Calamita Cosmica in Italian, or Cosmic Magnet in English, the piece has been displayed in various locations around Europe including Milan (first three photos) and Versailles (fourth photo). It currently resides in Rome at the Museo Nazionale della Arti del XXI Secolo.
