The Nativity Group

Lucio’s sculptures do not merely show his considerable aesthetic and technical expertise; each has some story to tell. Be it a cup decorated with Venus and a putto - a hymn of joy to motherhood, this Nativity Group comprised of almost sixty figures, the great composition of Paradiso and Inferno for Eternal Temptation … each speaks of good and evil in equal measure, and their message is hardly clear-cut. In their midst, humankind will always be subject to the incessant urge, that eternal temptation, to doubt.

The Group was exhibited at the Scuola Grande dei Carmini in Venice on New Year's Eve of the new millenium.
