Human magnificent bodies

Julius Popper, a Jew, was what could be called an adventurous criminal, an unscrupulous man who did not hesitate to exterminate an entire people, the Selk'nam, who had always lived in their land in southern Argentina. It was a genocide, but history is full of genocides, and this is even less important because the Selk'nam people were not even considered a human population.

RUBINI

Emanuele Rubini (?). Italian sculptor.
I have already said it and I repeat again: I am distrusted by self-taught artists because when we investigate in depth a good part of their production emerge gaps that are unmistakable. Rubini could be one of them. I also have to admit that I met several self-taught artists worthy of all respect. Rubini could be one them. Equipped with an inexhaustible creative imagination he chose to express himself with the forms of abstraction that could carry us back to many decades ago, but his extraordinary technical skill make us forget it. Rubini may also be bizarre, the man behaves in the questionable way that characterizes many contemporary artists, but it is hard not be led astray.
