Ghosts Underground (6) by Livio Scarpella

The work of Italian contemporary artist Livio Scarpella turns good and evil into delicacy. This group of sculptures, named “Ghosts Underground”, depicts lost souls anguishing beneath the effect of a thin veil. Scarpella’s interest in this subject was inspired by a trip to the Sansevero Chapel in Naples, home to Antonio Corradini’s “Veiled Christ”.
