The Primavera Spring Statue on Ponte Santa Trinita in Florence.  In  Italy on August 3, 1944, the occupying German Army forced all Florence residents to stay home for several days. They then destroyed five of six bridges that crossed the Arno (only the Ponte Vecchio was spared) in anticipation of the Allied advance. Among the casualties that night was Primavera, the Spring statue created by Pietro Francavilla in 1608 for the Ponte Santa Trinita bridge. By 1958, the bridge was rebuilt and the Four Season statues were returned to their corners. But Primavera remained decapitated until her head was found in 1961 buried deep in the mud downstream.

 

There are three image sizes. Each one is printed on 300gsm cotton rag paper. There are three corresponding framed sizes which include a timber frame in a choice of five colours; a glass window and a white mat board.
