  • Alberto 1ft (1.5ft including plinth) by Paul Oz

    Introducing Paul Oz's amazing "Alberto" 1ft sculpture (1.5ft plus plinth), which depicts the classic horse insignia in a unique form. This sculpture is the culmination of an unusual artistic endeavour in which a stunt horse named Luminoso was trained to rear on one leg, a feat filmed in 3D by a network of 200 cameras. This dynamic position, with the horse's whole weight transmitted to one leg, was precisely cast into a 3ft tall, 30kg bronze sculpture that balances flawlessly without additional support. This degree of precision and detail would have been difficult to produce with traditional clay modelling, making "Alberto" a real work of modern art. Named after Ferrari's first F1 world winner, Alberto Ascari, this item not only reflects technological prowess but also pays tribute to a great name in racing history.




    • Height: 1ft (1.5ft including plinth)
    • Material: 30kg of bronze
    • Balance: Perfectly balanced on one hoof without external support
    • Inspiration: Named after Ferrari's first F1 world champion, Alberto Ascari
    • Creation Process: Captured in 3D using 200 cameras
    • Dynamic Pose: Represents the horse rearing on one leg




    Q1: How was the "Alberto" sculpture created?

    A1: The sculpture was created by capturing a stunt horse, Luminoso, in 3D while rearing on one leg. This technology needs 200 cameras to capture every feature perfectly.

    Q2: What material is used for the "Alberto" sculpture?

    A2: The sculpture is composed of 30kg bronze, which ensures endurance and a timeless appearance.

    Q3: Is the sculpture balanced naturally?

    A3: Yes, the "Alberto" sculpture is perfectly balanced on one foot, without any bolts or external supports, which astounded even the foundry workers.

    Q4: Who is the sculpture named after?

    A4: The sculpture, named "Alberto" after Ferrari's first Formula One world champion, honours both artistic and sporting traditions.

    Q5: Can I see the process of how this sculpture was made?

    A5: While the exact 3D capture process is not available to the public, Paul Oz's interviews and publications tell the story and inspiration behind its development.
