January 30, 2012

In 2007, Gino de Dominicis'  28-meter long skeleton sculpture, Calamita Cosmica, was placed in the heavily trafficked Palazzo Reale in Milan, Italy.We were looking back in our archives if we ever posted this, and it looks like we hadn't. And it is never too late to show you a 28-meter long skeleton. (images via)

Gino, who passed away in the late 1990s, created the sculpture to replicate a human skeleton, minus the nose of course. According to Gessato, "It was first introduced to the World in 1990 at the Centre National d’Art Contemporain in Grenoble, France. Then it left France and resided in the courtyard of the Palace of Capodimonte, Naples in 1996. In 2005, it had a short visit on display at the Mole Vanvitelliana in Ancona, Italy – the artist’s hometown. It traveled again to Palazzo Reale in Milan during 2007 and then moved to the front facade of the Versailles Chateau of the Parterre d’ Eau after a few months. Furthermore, it was on display at the Musee des Arts Contemporains in Hornu, Belguim and has made its final destination for now in Rome."
