How is the first statue of Messi with the three stars?
It is a work carried out by the renowned sculptor Victor Hugo Coluccio. And it is made of fiber cement and weighs between 120 and 140 kilos. As detailed by the artist, the project of the work took six months and he worked in the workshop for three months.
The statue of Messi measures 1.69, just like the captain of the Argentine National Team, and is making the characteristic gesture of the world champion: with open hands and index fingers pointing to the sky.
The project began before the Qatar 2022 World Cup, at the request of the fan Hugo Nicoli, for all that the player from Rosario means and beyond any result.
As the sculptor pointed out, for the end of the world the statue was already finished, but he did not want to hand it over until he could make the third star: “I felt something inside, which I think all Argentines feel, the artist said”, in relation to faith to be world champions again.
In addition, Víctor Hugo Coluccio spoke of a special climate, of something that was throbbing in the environment and of something very magical in relation to this team to Lionel Messi.
