Artist Statement

In one of many photos I took at the Victor Emanuele II Monument back in 2015, this cute little cherub, a small part of a much larger sculpture, appears to be keeping a watchful eye over the adjoining piazza.

He seems so innocent while he holds a sword.
Is he aware of what it is that he holds? Is he ready for a fight?
Or does his naivety rule strongest in his mind, blissfully unaware of the irony he displays?

A messenger of love, wielding an instrument of death.
