Artist's Description

This interesting sculpture can be found in Siena on the way into the town as you leave the piazza by the church of San Francesco.
It is a modern work – 1995 – but it is connected with one of the ancient contrade of Siena: the Bruco (caterpillar). This contrada has always been associated with the silk trade and on the sculpture can be seen a rose hanging by a thread on which there us a crowned caterpillar – the symbol of this contrade. The colours of the Bruco contrada can be seen on the pennant in the small picture and these will be one of the large number of colours forming part of the huge spectacle of the Palio every year in the Campo di Siena.
The Bruco is one of only four ‘Nobil’ contrade, having been given this title back in the 14C.

Canon 1D MkII with Canon 70-200mm f2.8L lens at 165mm; ISO 400 f5 1/500
