Tindaro Screpolato is an enormous bronze statue by sculptor Igor Mitoraj that is located in the Boboli Garden in Florence, Italy. The Germany-born Polish artist's towering structure features the cracked and disembodied face of a man set against the lush, green landscape of the garden. The crumbling visage complements its lively environment, at times seeming like its guardian that weathered down to nothing more than a fractured face, holding its position nonetheless.”
