A framed limited edition wall sculpture created by contemporary artist Nic Joly, as part of the Art Life Football collection which pays homage to the legendary football player Pelé, and celebrates his 75th birthday. This piece is hand signed by both the artist, and Pelé.
On this piece, Nic Joly says: "For this sculpture, I researched and made the number 10 and name Pelé as close to the exact lettering as possible to that was on the back of Pelé’s iconic shirt. For the colouring of the lettering, I used a green close to the Brazil green on the shirt, but also added a bit of texture to echo the grass of a football pitch. Each figure in the piece I have carved and made, basing the various poses you see upon photographs of Pelé in action.
