The Roar

White Arni marble
The Roar came right after Euripides. With this new piece I again wished to avoid already quarried stone and preferred to go up to Altissimo, where Michelangelo had gotten his marble, to find something suitable. This shattered rock was transported down to Querceta, where I then proceeded to meet its challenge.
