Baby Girl and Dog

Cesare Zocchi (Florence, 1851 – Turin, 1922) was a sculptor of some renown in the late years of the 19th century. He is the author of the monument to Giuseppe Garibaldi in Florence (1890) and of the statue of Vittorio Emanuele II in Pisa (1892).

A quite different work of the same sculptor, “Bambina su seggiolone e cane” (Baby girl in a high chair and dog), sits at the entrance of the “Biblioteca dei Ragazzi” (Children's Library).

This piece is awesome! It must have been quite some work, can you imagine get this out of the stone? :)
