Embark on a journey through art and history with the "Disillusion: Eternal Sculptures II" 3 Oz Silver Coin, the second captivating release in this esteemed series dedicated to the world's most renowned sculptures. This edition pays homage to "Disillusion," also known as "The Release from Deception," a masterpiece created by the skilled hands of Genoese artist Francesco Queirolo in the 18th century. The coin's design, brought to life with Smartminting Ultra High Relief on both sides, captures the essence of this iconic sculpture with meticulous attention to detail.
The reverse of the coin unfolds the narrative of "Disillusion" in stunning High Relief. The artwork portrays a poignant scene in which a fisherman, symbolic of humanity, is liberated from the entanglements of a net by a graceful angel. The net, serving as a metaphor for sin, unravels as the angel releases the man, freeing him from the burdens of wrongdoing. At the fisherman's feet rests the Bible, signifying a transformative encounter with spirituality. The entire image is adorned with a mesmerizing metallic marble effect, adding an extra layer of depth to the coin's visual appeal. An ornamental frame, featuring a Renaissance pattern, surrounds the masterpiece, creating a sense of classical elegance.
The obverse of the coin bears the inscriptions "MMXXIII" to signify the year of issue in Roman numerals, "ETERNAL SCULPTURES II" denoting the series, and "DISILLUSION" as the name of this particular coin. The combination of Black Proof quality and Smartminting technology elevates the coin's aesthetic, making it a true work of art in the realm of numismatics.
