The Mysterious Frieze

Bas-relief on a facade, via del Risorgimento, Livorno
On the facade of a small building in Via del Risorgimento we can admire one of the most enigmatic pieces of art in town. The fascinating relief is dramatically unfinished or perhaps inspired by some futuristic vision of mankind.

This IS odd. I wonder if it was once finished and later was damaged.

Could it just be age?

It feels unfinished to me.

This mysterious bas-relief is actually a relief from all the perfectly sculpted other works in town.
I love your interpretation of it. LOL!
