Rosa Serra's works express the aesthetic emotion of the sporting movement. The artist wants to depict movement and action, and when a sportsman is in action and movement, we recognise him by his personal style and fighting spirit more than by his face or the characteristics of his legs. Indeed, most of the athletes depicted have no facial features and some of them show no differentiation of legs.
Rosa Serra has studied sports movement with passion and intuition, and all her sculptures represent sporting action at its zenith. Here, a weightlifter is starting the difficult movement to the snatch.
