Rare ‘Arca’ sculptural object designed by Giuseppe Rivadossi manufactured by Officina Rivadossi, Italy 1975. Rivadossi often creates artwork that reflects his thoughts and favourite themes. One theme he loves is the story of Noah’s Ark, a famous biblical tale about saving animals and people from a great flood. In his art, Rivadossi uses shapes that look like arches. These shapes represent the protection of life. They cradle life, just like how seeds hold the potential for new growth and vitality. This piece is a beautiful version of the ‘Arca’ made from cherry wood. It features 4 doors with hollow space inside, perfect for storing small items.
