Zurini was originally a motor-racing photographer of some renown, having worked on the legendary movie ‘Grand Prix’ as long ago as 1966. He turned to sculpture in the 1970s, usually creating small editions of eight examples only. Over the years, he has occasionally created unique, monumental works such as ‘Élégante’, made entirely by hand in 1986.
