This is Giocoliere, a bronze sculpture by Marino Marini in 1939 which is one of just three in the world which the artist cast. Giocoliere means ‘juggler’ in Italian, and although I’m not sure what is being juggled here, there is meant to be a wider message about humanity and the individual struggle. Anyway, another one of these three sculptures sold in 2018 for just under £80,000, not a bad little result.
