The Giant of Apennines in Holland

"In the 16th century artist and sculptor Giambologna needed 11 years to cut a sculpture from the boulders in the Medici gardens near Florence – a giant holding the head of a water-spouting monster under the ground using one hand.

The version standing in the Mondo Verde park – 14m high – was created by two Americans over seven month period. The ingredients included an iron frame, 470,000 kg of concrete, and a great deal of courage and imagination."


Это текст с некой сопроводительной таблички, которая там стояла. Я пока ничего не проверял про этого Giambologna, за что купил, про то и запостил.
