Allegoria del lavoro

enrico butti





Infinito ?

Edicola Besenzanica, Besenzanica Tomb, 1912

Butti said through work, man senses his relation to the eternal mother of all things.

Anyway, sooner or later a work has to finish, as life does.

Enrico Butti (1847-1932) has taken his inspiration from a work of L. Bartolini in  Santa Croce, Florence. Isabella Airoldi died very young in 1889 he was only 24 years old. You can see her here in the cemetery, still sleeping and dreaming of death. Angels come to the Earth from the sky and take her to paradise.
