The Solomon Guggenheim MuseumMaurizio Cattelan: ALLLuis Maurizio Cattelan’s installation art, called all, was filled with many sculptures andimages that convey many different meanings to the people who saw it. One in particularsculpture from the installation from Cattelan was “La Nona Ora” translated as “The Ninth Hour”made in 1999.Pope John Paul II, a three dimensional figure, is a wax sculpture that is pictured as
laying on the floor, crushed under a rock that can be perceived as a meteorite. Pope John Paul IIlays there as he holds onto his twisted crucifix with both hands. Pope John Paul II wears hisnormal attire that consist of a white robe called cassock, with a pair of burgundy dress shoes, anda white round cap called zucchetto. The only accessories the sculpture has are a signet ring onthe right hand on the Pope’s ring finger and a gold chrome necklace with the crucifix on it. Someof the materials Cattelan used in order to make the sculpture of Pope John Paul II were:wax,pigment, fabric, human hair, polyester resin, clothing, carpet, accessories, and stone. The waxwas used to make the sculpture; the pigment was used for the color and makeup on the face; thepolyester resin was used to hold the sculpture together and make it look more durable; the fabricused was for the robe of the Pope; the stone was used as a meteorite; and the carpet was cut off inorder to place Pope John Paul II on top of it. The Pope has a slightly light cream skin color.. Thetexture of the sculpture looks smooth, heavy, and hard, but the carpet looks rough and casual.
