The Fondazione Archivio Antonio Ligabue exhibits two works, the King of the Forest masterpiece, the largest picture painted by Ligabue (cm 190x251) and Tiger attacked by a snake, cm 66x80, at the show SerpentiForm organized by Bulgari and curated by Lucia Boscaini, Heritage curator of the Maison.
In these works, a lion and a tiger become prey following the attack of asnake, a metaphor of human life and destiny unpredictability.
The aim of the exhibition is to illustrate how the evocative snake has inspired not only Bulgari but also many protagonists of the contemporary art, fashion, design and photography world. It’s not by chance that Ligabue was chosen by the Maison and put in a category with others like Joan Miró, Marc Chagall, Alexander Calder, Keith Haring, Depero, Balla, the only other Italian besides Ligabue.
