Pomodoro Sculpture Unveiled in Trinity Centre Pomodoro, one of Italy’s leading sculptors, attended the unveiling of his sculpture ‘Scudo II’ at the Trinity Centre for Health Sciences , St James’s Hospital by the Provost, Dr. John Hegarty on Tuesday 23 rd November. Sponsored by The John Durkan Memorial Trust, this is the third piece of Pomodoro’s work to be displayed in TCD along with his ‘Sphere with Sphere’ sculpture outside the Berkley Library and paintings in the Genetics Department . Scudo II is one of a series of Pomodoro’s ‘shield’ sculptures from the 1980s. Designed from a cuttle-bone, the sculpture is enhanced by the changing reflections of light as well as by traces of movement generated by the passing spectator. Pomodoro, who received an Honorary Degree from Trinity in 1992 has won numerous awards for his art since the 1960s. His work is exhibited all over the world including Milan, Copenhagen, Brisbane, the Vatican in Rome and outside the United Nations in New York.
