The sculpture, in resin or ceramic, contains numerous meanings:
The rays on the shoulder, a sign of hope and resilience, shine on the saint's shoulder.
On the other side, the pastoral staff represents a weapon of love, an instrument of guidance and protection to be used with kindness to lead a people, the Neapolitan one, to salvation.
The ampoule of the discussed and awaited miracle is in the center of the chest, a little further up, at neck level, an engraving on the cloak represents martyrdom.
The gaze is turned to the future in the hope of a better tomorrow. The Saint thus assumes a typical footballer's pose to also pay homage to the sporting miracle of the Scudetto obtained by Napoli last May.
Available in various formats, in various materials and different sizes and color variations, the work represents a restyling of the bust of the Patron Saint which manages to combine the Pop Art soul of the Neapolitan atelier Le Voci di Dentro with the traditional shape of the fourteenth-century bust .
