This work, meaning ‘Miracle’ in English, was created by Marino Marini in 1952 and was cast in bronze. As with many other works by the artist on this theme, it’s a horse and rider in what looks quite a precarious position. Marini comes back to this throughout his career, and he starts with a horse and rider under control, and throughout time, as the artist despairs with the world, the situation becomes more chaotic. Quite a nice metaphor, it could be argued that we need something similar given the political situation that we face today.
