The exhibition has been organized in collaboration with the Contrada della Tartuca (The Tortoise Neighborhood) to celebrate their victory in last year’s ‘Palio Straordinario’. It showcases a number of previously-unseen carvings by the British artist, which explore the relationship between humankind and nature through the use of ancient and sacred statuary models.
The display of Emily’s work in the museum is significant, as the artist herself has a special relationship with Siena, sourcing part of her stones from the nearby Monte Amiata, and working them in situ.
The exhibition is open every week on Monday, Friday and Saturday, between 10am-12pm and 3-6pm. The entry is free of charge. For further information, please contact the gallery.
