Decorative Panel Girl with ears of wheat in Italian terracotta
In heraldry the ear of corn is a symbol of agricultural industriousness; as such it frequently appears in the civic heraldry of peasant communities. In general, the WHEAT is a symbol of rebirth and therefore of life itself. Its cycle is a path that marks a real transition from shadow to light.
Terracotta consists of a clay mixture that is fired at a temperature of 980-990 ° C and has a reddish color thanks to the presence of ferrous substances. Resistant to freezing at -30 ° C, thermal shocks and brackish, with the passage of time it acquires a beautiful appearance on the surface where lichens and mosses can deposit creating different textures and designs, which will make each object an even more exclusive piece and personal.
Thanks to these unique characteristics, ITALIAN TERRACOTTA marries perfectly with the most modern concepts of design and architecture, combining refinement and durability, modern design and ancient material.
