The Beast

This bronze sculpture shows one of the typical subjects of the artist, often related to ancient culture and myth. In the same years, 1970’s, he engraved many other figures inspired by similar beasts, such as Minotaur, full of energy and virility. These works have a strong materiality, due also to the technique employed by Behan, a sort of assembly of different cognate bronze pieces.
