Terracotta bison with legs on a bed of leaves, by Demétre Haralamb Chiparus (1886-1947). The Romanian artist worked and lived in Paris where he became one of the most appreciated Art Deco sculptors. One of his “American Bison” sculptures was exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1942.
Precious cigar holder with bison sculpture, purchased in Paris in 1975. It was built out of a single block of meerschaum, a rare mineral found only in Syria which is particularly suitable for smoking devices as it is retains aroma well. Mouthpiece in amber.
When he roots for his women’s volleyball team, Wanny is as passionate as he is superstitious: whenever he watches Il Bisonte Firenze play in the A Series championships, he always wears mismatched, different colored shoes.
Wanny Di Filippo has always been one with his company. So no one was surprised to see him take on the role of spokesperson for Il Bisonte. What amazed everyone was the unconventional way he embarked upon becoming the face and body of the brand’s ad campaigns.
To use it, you must remove its trousers. The USB pen-drive —made in his image and likeness—is full of Wanny’s irreverent and pleasing humor, the childish joy of someone who knows you are about to make you smile.
