Endless things have been written about Bud Spencer (born Carlo Pedersoli), all for the love, the passion and respect for a character who survived entire generations without losing an ounce of his weight (in every sense!) and status as an international icon. It is almost impossible to find someone between the ages of twenty and sixty who, on hearing the name Bud Spencer, doesn’t smile with happiness and gratitude for all the fun moments spent with him. Together with Terence Hill (born Mario Girotti), he created one of the most loved duos in cinema, an extraordinary pairing that families still watch together. Bud Spencer is cinema’s good giant, the grump that always uses well-placed punches to sort out the endless “baddies” who unwisely provoke him. Bud Spencer is a guarantee, sure to provide fun and passion, joy and laughter. In other words, Bud Spencer is Bud Spencer.
This time, there was no doubt on how to represent a cinema great like Bud Spencer. There was no other way than to show him in his most iconic guise, one of his most loved roles, where Westerns were made of sweat, slaps and beans, where a fake sheriff was better than a real one and where there was laughter from beginning to end. In the role of Bambino, ready to throw his weight with punches and funny jokes, and in the end make his unmistakable laugh be heard.
We have left nothing to chance, working intensely on every single detail that could possibly render this 1:6 scale statue a unique and unforgettable object, a tribute to the great Bud, something without precedent and of superior quality. An iconic and complex statue to express the idea of perfection of every little detail, a statue to be enjoyed over time, and that you will never tire of admiring. This, finally, is Bud Spencer!
