The figure is the artist's response to the disappearance of the need for chamber sculpture and embodies his creative formal explorations - synthesis, simplification and coherence. The sculpture exposes the problem of the material, presents the texture and design typical of soft materials. The Amazon River combines the formal issues of modern sculpture with the modern bozzetto tradition and the issues of a horse statue of ancient origin.
