BATTLE GROUND, WASHINGTON, USA, August 28, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The “Battle of the Centaurs” is a relief sculpture by the Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo, created around 1492. It was the last work Michelangelo created while under the patronage of Lorenzo de Medici, who died shortly after its completion. Inspired by a classical relief created by Bertoldo di Giovanni, the marble sculpture represents the mythic battle between the Lapiths and the Centaurs. A popular subject of art in ancient Greece, the story was suggested to Michelangelo by the classical scholar and poet Poliziano. The sculpture is exhibited in the Casa Buonarroti in Florence, Italy.
Battle of the Centaurs was a remarkable sculpture in several ways, presaging Michelangelo’s future sculptural direction. Michelangelo had departed from the then-current practices of working on a discrete plane to work multi-dimensionally. It was also the first sculpture Michelangelo created without the use of a bow drill and the first sculpture to reach such a state of completion with the marks of the subbia chisel left to stand as a final surface. Whether intentionally left unfinished or not, the work is significant in the tradition of the “non finito” sculpting technique for that reason. Michelangelo regarded it as the best of his early works and a visual reminder of why he should have focused his efforts on sculpture.
The Battle of the Centaurs in pure silver is an original casting and is the only one in silver that will ever be created. It is numbered 1 of 1 and weighs 2,333 troy ounces of .999 fine silver. This is the second original Michelangelo to be cast in pure silver. In July of 2022, at the Mirage Casino in Las Vegas, Mark Russo, Steve Forbes (owner of Forbes Publishing), and Michael Sheppard unveiled Michelangelo’s Pietà original cast in over 20,000 ounces of pure silver as the single largest silver sculpture on earth.
