A donation in 1971, together with three other professors of the Academy, gave rise to the Art Collection of card. Lercaro. He is also the author of many sculptures in the Certosa di Bologna cemetery.
The terracotta sculpture is in fair age related condition with a lovely dark bronze patina.The neck, the right knee and the left ankle show cracks that do not affect the sculpture statics thanks to an iron core inside the figure.
