Once again we travel down the aisle of art that is not 2D. Artist Mauro Perucchetti took chisel in hand and carved his take on The Creation of Adam.

It’s quite a large statue measuring 76x74x29 inches, and it features Superman as the godlike being bringing Batman to life.  I also understand the artist may have included his likeness in the face of Superman.

  1. I so love this! It’s amazing how open minded Mauro is and how he considers all of us equal. Obama approved same sex marriages and why can’t an artist be the same. We are all humans and we all have the same hearts. Very cool.

  2. Dear Stephan, Thank you for posting Mauro’s work Modern Heroes which is currently being exhibited in a public installation in the City of West Hollywood for the next 6 months. Mauro’s did use the image of his face when he was younger for both faces in this sculpture. The original is all white hand carved marble. The classical position of Batman and Superman brought to life in a contemporary way. This sculpture was also exhibited 2 years ago during FIAC in front of the Louvre at plac du louvre and was very well received by the public.
    I love his work and think he is the next Koons in my opinion.
    Cheers,Lori Smith
