Imposing Triumph

Photograph of the Statue “Florence Triumphant over Pisa” by Giambologna. Located in the Bargello Museum, this statue was executed in 1565 for the wedding of Francesco I de’ Medici and Joanna of Austria. Representing a woman subduing a man, Giambologna's sculpture is the allegory of Florence which triumphs over Pisa and Virtue who subdues Vice.
Rauchenberger's artwork represents a part of the Giambologna original sculptural group to emphasize the strength and the beauty of the female triumphant protagonist.
Digital photography and use of colour filters to exalt the sensuality and the majesty of the statue through orange and light green contrasts.
