The hen with the golden eggs
The work talks about the rich life of Sebastiano Ferrero. He was an important businessman of the Italian Renaissance. He lived and died in Biella (1438 - 1519).
The man that is portrayed is S. Ferrero, he was like a golden eggs hen for Biella, Italy and Europe. He was richer than a king. In the picture he gives one golden egg to the deer, the animal that gives the name to the river of the city. The "Deer" was the most important river for the city of Biella in the ages from 1700 to 1900. In those years were born a lot of wool industries that use water to make wool, the best woll of the world.
This is for us the first mural in the city of Biella, the place where we were born.
