On the windowsill of the dining room, you will have the opportunity to admire the sculpture Oceano nox of the self-taught artist Jean-Pierre Gendra. Since his first encounter with the material in 1989 through clay modelling, the artist has tried his hand at several of them. In particular, he tested direct carving on wood before falling in love with bronze, which he successfully cast for the first time in 1993. He describes this experience as follows: "Bronze is living a journey with creation, leading to all the stages of the work, from conception to technical realisation, especially the fascinating moment of the fusion of the metal".
For his sculpture Oceano nox created in July 2013, the artist wanted to convey the harshness and danger of the fisherman's job. With this work, he also aims to make the public think about ecological issues such as the dangers of overfishing and the importance of having a reasoned approach in the use that Man makes of natural resources.
