Description Large glass sculpture in red, clear and black colored glass.
Glass applied in successive layers of petals on a gilded bronze structure with gold leaf.

Upupa represents a Hoepoe, it was imagined in 1964 by Toni Zuccheri when he collaborated with Venini for the development of a series of sculptures representing birds.
This series called "Bestiario" by Venini also includes backyard birds, guinea fowl, roosters, chickens… and wild birds.

Upupa is the most spectacular bird in the series, and without a doubt the most difficult to manufacture.
Venini has been producing it in excessively limited series since 1964, when the model was created.
Venini reported us to produce 1 to 2 pieces a year on average basis.

Our example is in excellent condition. It is signed on the bronze base with a pastille on which we can read the inscription venini - TZ - 2002. 2002 being the year of production.
