Mattia Trotta born in 1980 in Savona, is an Italian sculptor. He expresses himself through a personal and innovative technique which requires the plastic processing steel wire, silver, bronze, aluminum. He notes:
Every line has its reason to exist, the work of art is solid; nevertheless the wind flows through it and the air integrates with the volume, connecting the sculpture with the surrounding environment
There are very few words to describe the beauty of the Mattias sculptures … enjoy the pictures!

Kiki Smith - Lilith (1994)
"Smith’s art is devoted to the exploration of the human body, inside and out. This deliberately unsettling sculpture was created from life casts of a female model and, in accordance with the artist’s instructions, it is hung so that Lilith clings to the wall upside down, staring up at the viewer with glass eyes. The title refers to an ancient Sumerian demon, a creature of the air who, in post-biblical Hebrew legend is identified as Adam’s intended first wife, who flew away when he refused to accept her as his equal. Long relegated to the realms of superstition and viewed as an evil spirit dangerous to men and children, Lilith has been reinterpreted in recent decades as an ideal of female strength and independence.”
